Musée du Fort
A part of the Price family estate, Musée du Fort presents a one-of-a-kind sound and light show on Québec City’s military history. Located in front of the famous Château Frontenac, the museum is an ideal start to your journey through a historical tour of Old Québec.
Naval Museum of Québec
Located at the corner of Bassin Louise and the St. Lawrence River, and just steps from our hotel, the Naval Museum invites you to set sail through the history of Québec City and its iconic waterways, wade through the secrets of enemy submarines, and drink in tales of the Naval Reserve of Canada.
Musée de la Civilisation
One of the most popular museums in Québec City, Musée de la Civilisation stands out for its bold and innovative exhibits. An imaginative destination for history and culture buffs, the museum contains Québec’s largest ethnographic and historical collection, including the Muséee de l'Amérique francophone, Musée de la Place-Royale, and Maison historique Chevalier.
Located just steps from our hotel in Old Québec City, Place Royale is the cradle of French civilization in North America. Samuel de Champlain began construction of his fortified habitation at the base of Cap Diamant in 1608, where it became the first permanent colony in New France, making Place Royale not only the oldest neighborhood in Québec City, but one of the most historic in all of North America. Its architecture and narrow streets have borne witness to four centuries of history and are home to Notre-Dame-des-Victoires church, the Place Royale interpretation center, several art boutiques, and renowned restaurants.
