Explore Horizons with your kids

The whole family will love Horizons, an illustrated immersive interpretation tour that looks at four themes : the city itself, its identity, its rich history and its culture. The flow is lucid and rhythmic, inspired by the flow of river ice. The experience includes two immersive video projections, from one cardinal point to another, and invites you to travel through time as you get a bird’s-eye view of the fortified city. You'll love this trip into the heart of Québec City, as well as the hand-illustrated quiz that lets both kids and parents test their knowledge.
