To discover, see and do...

A bell tower, an 18th-century home and its inner court, a stone pier, a monumental sculpture symbolizing the spring break-up, just a few metres from the majestic St. Lawrence. The Musée de la civilisation à Québec is all this. A museum that reflects the complexity and diversity of the human experience, here and elsewhere. Its thematic programming, through a variety of original exhibitions and many cultural and educational activities, allows the Museum to deal with both the burning issues of the day and many dimensions of day-to-day life. It?s a museum of the human adventure!
