This little museum was right near our Airbnb, so we checked it out. It had a couple simple exhibits and some military history of the city, and it was kind of cool seeing all the different cannons outside. Worth a quick stop-in.

This is a Parks Canada site, and part of the Fortifications of Quebec. Very nice park. Be sure to go into the museum. From here you can walk all the way to Port St. Louis along the ramparts.
