Museum of Civilization (Musée de la Civilisation)#11 in Best Things To Do in Quebec City
Overlooking the port from its seat in Old Québec – just a short walk from Place-Royale – the Museum of Civilization explores the history of human society in Québec and uses interactive exhibits to draw a connection between the past and the present. While you will find expected art and artifact collections, you'll also come across exciting specialized exhibits devoted to a variety of topics, such as life in the city throughout different generations and Québec's culinary heritage.
Many recent visitors praised the museum's architecture and atmosphere, and noted that the exhibits are informative and suitable for families, though some remark that the museum is on the smaller side.
The Museum of Civilization is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is CA$16 (about $13) for adults 31 years and older, CA$10 for visitors ages 18 to 30 (about $8) and CA$5 (about $4) for children. There's also a gift shop and a bistro-style restaurant on-site. To learn more about the museum, visit its website.

Clustered around the city's harbor on the banks of the St. Lawrence River are the quaint stone buildings and narrow, winding streets of Old Québec. This historic neighborhood (and UNESCO World Heritage site) houses some of the city's most notable attractions, including the Citadel, the Quartier Petit-Champlain and the Notre-Dame Basilica. Just make sure you give yourself plenty of time here: You'll find it difficult to resist popping into one of Old Québec's artisan shops or stopping to warm up with an aromatic cup of coffee at one of the many charming cafes.
