Located at the heart of Old Québec City, the Plains of Abraham fascinate visitors with their story and splendour. This green oasis in an urban environment is sprinkled with historical treasures left over from the famous battles of 1759 and 1760 and which are exhibited at the Plains of Abraham Museum. Here’s a look at what’s new at this must-see summer attraction!

Battles and Order and Law

At the Plains of Abraham Museum, the exhibition Battles lets you learn about the battles of 1759 and 1760 and makes you feel what it would have been like to be there. The French, British, Canadian and Aboriginal characters who took part in the battles will tell you their stories through an amazing immersive projection and a collection of uniforms. This summer a brand new section called Order and Law will look at how soldiers were supervised. It will focus, through a number of interactive stations, on rationing, management of resources, military discipline and how soldiers were made examples of to prevent misconduct. See why alcohol was important in the relationship between armies and what was the role of women and how difficult their living conditions were at the time. This interactive exhibition is an original way to truly get into history.

Identities, a new permanent exhibition

The Battlefields Park is home to many archeological sites formerly occupied by people from various backgrounds: men, women and children; Catholics and Protestants; colonials and city dwellers; civilians and military personnel. All of them left physical traces of their passage that have been unearthed over many years. Identities, the new permanent exhibition at the Plains of Abraham Museum takes a look back at these people through the artifacts found at many sites. Step into their shoes and see how they lived, worked, ate, dressed and presented themselves.
