Great museum! The exhibit with the history of Quebec was awesome and likely my favourite. Venenum and Curiosities was great as well and had a fair amount to showcase. I found the collections and artifacts to be small, but it is a smaller museum. I found I spent most of my time reading and not observing pieces or items in showcases. Overall a great experience, definitely worth paying the extra money to see the exhibitions because if not you're really limited to 3 exhibits.
Interesting collection of exhibitions. I saw one ones on the development of Quebec, First Nations, and Toxins. The layout was not well indicated so working out where the entrance to each exhibition was located was a mystery tour. Exhibitions were wel laid out, with lots of text in French and English providing the back stories. Very modern building with excellent facilities and cafe. Some interesting artworks on the terraces at the top of the building.
