Located right beside Place Royale (the main square of Lower Town), this massive museum is one of Québec City’s crown jewels in terms of its international reputation. Varied programming explores the human adventure in contemporary civilization. And with 10 exhibits on view at any given time, many of them interactive, it’s really more of a cultural complex. Permanent exhibits include People of Québec…Then and Now. The “hands-on room” is definitely worth checking out, not only for kids but the whole family. Like Québec City itself, the building’s striking architectural design effectively combines historical and modern structures.
