Come explore over 340 years of military history (1666-2007) on the site of the former Saint-Jean Royal Military College, featuring Native warriors, French and English troops, American revolutionaries and many different Canadian units. Located in the former Protestant chapel, the Museum tells the story of a heritage site that is the only place in Canada, aside from Quebec City, to have been continuously occupied by military forces since the French regime. The exhibition presents thematic maps, models, uniforms, weapons and other artifacts. An outdoor guided tour lets you walk in the steps of the many different people who have passed this way over the years and see the remains of ramparts, military equipment and the original British buildings dating from 1839, all on an enchanting site next to the Richelieu River.
