Naval Museum of Québec

To see and experience

The Museum’s permanent exhibition brings the River’s history to life, from Native times until World War II. As you’ll see, it has always been a popular place!

Come aboard … virtually, with Jacques Kanon, your privateer guide! Visit seven stations, where this hardy mariner and his friend, the Museum’s Director, will show you some items with lots of salty tales to tell about Quebec’s naval history.

The St. Lawrence forms much of the Canada-U.S. border. Did you know that it’s the world’s longest undefended border? Check out the nine outdoor panels and read all about its sometimes turbulent past.

Interested in knowing how the city’s port grew over the years? You won’t want to miss the interpretation panels lining the quays in the old port.

Hop the ferry
… between Quebec City and Lévis, and check out the on-board exhibition on this form of transportation. Or take a cruise aboard the MV Louis-Jolliet and learn about Quebec City’s military history, from past to present.
