Naval Museum of Québec

To see and experience

Our permanent exhibition, Heirs of War, is an opportunity to hear the stories of the descendants and the relatives of sailors who served during World War II. What impact did this military experience have on their families once they returned to civilian life? What objects did they bring back? From epic naval battles to surprising friendships, meet the men and women who fought for peace, through the stories told by the people who knew them best.

Discover the open reserves, which showcase some of the most representative objects of our collection in the heart of our Museum’s exhibition room. Information displays provide an opportunity to learn about navigation instruments, medals, uniforms and model ships.

A very special door is located inside the Naval Museum. Open it and travel back in time to meet Lieutenant-Commander Stanislas Déry, after whom our Museum is named, a man who left his mark on the history of the Naval Reserve because of his courage and humanity. The unique technology of the virtual door even allows you to communicate with other adventurers from elsewhere!

Come see the historical yacht Jeffy Jan II just outside of the museum! It is located at 144 Dalhousie, along the Louis-Audette Building. The Symbols exhibition tells the remarkable story of the Jeffy Jan II, a luxury yacht that found itself at the heart of the Québec Conferences during World War II.
