Lonely Planet review

This interpretive center touts the Place-Royale neighborhood as the cradle of French history. The exhibits focus on the individual people, houses and challenges of setting up on the shores of the St Lawrence River. It goes a bit heavy on random artifacts, but it still includes some worthwhile displays that help illuminate what local life was like from the 1600s to the 20th century. Children will have lots of fun dressing up in historical costumes in the downstairs play area, and tours of the Lower Town are offered by guides in period garb during summer.
