At the Museum of the Plains of Abraham, the Battles exhibition lets you plunge right into the battles of 1759 and 1760. British, French, Canadian and First Nations characters give you firsthand accounts through an incredible immersive projection. Thanks to its array of authentic objects, this exhibition will reveal the regiments’ strategic secrets, what life was like at the camp, how the soldiers dressed and what were the rules they had to follow. A collection of uniforms, maps, scale models, interactive games and period reproductions convey the significance of the events that took place during the Seven Years’ War.
The Attention, Gunner of the Martello Tower exhibition invites you to admire the architecture of Québec City’s Martello Towers, marvel at military engineering and discover the living arrangements of the soldiers who occupied these towers. Use the tablet to see historical images superimposed on the tower in real time.
You’re also invited to board Abraham Martin’s bus for a guided visit tinged with humour for the whole family. Listen to this friendly 400-year-old character, who sailed the St. Lawrence and was a friend of Samuel de Champlain, as he recalls the history of the Plains and shares well-kept secrets.
