Musee du Fort
A 400-square foot model of historic Quebec is the playing field for a state of the art light and sound show.
A portion of the 400-square-foot model
Quebec’s historic district has a quaint and cozy museum that offers an original sound and light show illustrating the 18th-century French resistance to Britain over Quebec.
The stories of all six sieges are presented, including the famous battle of the Plains of Abraham, and Benedict Arnold’s march to Quebec. The show lasts half an hour, and includes a 400-square-foot model representing the city in 1750. The museum is located in front of the famous Chateau Frontenac.

Update as of April 2023: The fort is closed for the entirety of 2023.
