  • 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.
