The exhibit on Quebec history is fascinating. Well told and nicely detailed. We balked on the Merde exhibit.

The Museum of Civilization is an interesting place to spend time. In addition to information about the history of Quebec City, I really enjoyed the well-curated exhibition on Pompeii. The interactive O Merde exhibition really was thought provoking and cleverly thought out.
Awesome museum! An excellent variety of exhibits with a good mix of interactive components, artifacts and reading. The feces exhibit was simply marvelous.
