Expand your Horizons
The Horizons exhibition is
an inspiring look at the history of the capital and at the events
that have shaped its identity. It’s an excellent starting point
for your trip and gives you an introductory course on the
splendours of the city of Québec through four themes: society,
politics, history and culture. The Observatoire de la Capitale
continues to be a prime attraction, having seen an increase in the
number of visitors between April 2017 to 2018 – up 33% from the
previous year for a record total of 121,329 visitors. It’s
definitely worth a tour, and it’s free for ages 12 and under.
