Mainly a big diorama and 30 minute video on the founding of Quebec and Quebec City. Focus is on the various battles over the years starting in the 1600's to take or try and take Quebec City. Good, entertaining history lesson.

Very interesting and a very good starting place to begin your visit of Quebec. The museum is very small, but the diorama presentation will give you a very good idea of the history of Quebec and Canada too.
