This breathtaking multimedia display avoids the commercialism that accompanies many such exhibits in favour of a truly educational experience. The show chronicles Quebec's history from pre-Colonial times, through various conflicts to the present day. Visitors are bombarded by lasers, 3D images and amazing sound effects, yet a strong, balanced narrative manages to break through the technological wizardry. Children and adults alike will enjoy the spectacle of it all and learn something despite themselves. Shows alternate between French and English and begin every half hour. Admission: CAD6.75 Adults; CAD4.75 Students and Seniors; free for children under 6.
The only way this show will impress you is if you are time-traveling from the 1930s. The show is VERY out of date. "Special effects" and "Illusions" were explained to us after the show... but there were no mysteries! The sound was terrible, seats uncomfortable, dirty everything, and over priced. SKIP THIS SHOW. The only reason it is still in business is because they book school groups. That captive audience has no choice in the matter, but why anyone would choose to spend time and money here is the real mystery.
This place is AMAZING. I went there, whne my dad had to visit my friend. Anyway.....it was amazing. ESPECIALLY TEH QUEBEC EXPERIENCE. It's a HUGE cinama theatre, but the video is not only 3D, it looks ALIVE. The whole experience was amazing and i recommend it to EVERYONE who likes 3D films or the movies.
Not good if you want to learn about Quebec, but fantastic for a laugh!

The Quebec Experience was quite possibly the funniest thing we have ever seen. From the constant waterfall to the coughing sound effects, this was a really fun hour. If you want to learn about Quebec's history, don't go, but if you want to be entertained then the Quebec Experience is a must!
We were very terribly disappointed in the Quebec 3D Experience. We had assumed that it would be a 3D movie of current Quebec with all the sites to visit. Instead it was a presentation of the historical time of Quebec. The portions of the presentation which were in 3D seemed like ancient technology and it was completely out of sync. You had to watch with one eye closed to keep from getting a headache.
