This was interesting to see but not that captivating. You need to be really Inter in artifacts. It wasn’t as kid-friendly as reviews made it out to be. Yes - there’s a scavenger hunt book you can fill out for a prize they kept them busy but the kids got bored quickly so we didn’t spend long there.

Have been wanting to visit this for many years but we were always in Quebec City in the winter when it it closed. We finally were able to visit in the summer. Joined an English tour. Used our National Park Discovery park pass so everything was included as part of our pass. Very informative and interesting tour to hear the evolution of the chateau. Guided tour is an hour and would recommend the tour over the audio tour.

It was interesting to see the remains of the original governer's chateau, but there wasn't really that much to see. The exhibit is underneath the Dufferin Terrace, and you buy tickets at the north end, but the entrance is more towards the middle of the terrace, a stroll away. You exit back at the place you paid for the tickets. Kids can get an "xplore" book with some educational questions to be answered, and they can receive a little souvenir back at the pay station upon your return. We took the audio tour, which had a lot of information to listen to. There are also guided tours in French and English (separately) and the tour being given in French that we overhead had a very capable, knowledgeable guide.

We went on an hour guided tour with Christina (in English) and we learned a lot. She is knowledgeable about the history behind Québec and how the “château “ evolve throughout the centuries. The price is reasonable. If you want to know a bit more about the fort, the old residence and the First Nations, this is the right tour.

Located right beneath the Dufferin Terrace, this place was where the ruling power was located in Quebec City for at least a couple of centuries.

It's an overlooked attraction, but worth the visit. Take a guided tour, which is offered regularly; we didn't and while there is information posted around the site, a tour would have made it more meaningful.

Tickets are located right by the funicular. The fort is underground, and is only open during the summer months.

Stop walking over it, go down and see it!
There are these 2 peep windows on the dufferins terrace, that I wasn't quite sure what they were for. Low and behold there are ruins from previous governor's homes under there. How could I not go down there and see it all.

I wanted a guided tour, but the next one in English was to late, so I paid for a self guided tour, but to my surprise, I got an guide tour as well, as the park ranger, was going down, and was able to narrative what I was seeing. That was nice.
It put a lot of things into perspective about Quebec city and how the place has evolved over time.

We took a guided tour of Saint-Louis Forts and Châteaux National Historic Site and had a great time. The guide was knowledgeable and did an excellent job of keeping us engaged. The site's history is exciting, and seeing what's left is impressive. This is an educational tour, and we highly recommend it.

What an excellent tour we kind of stumbled onto it and are we so glad we did this as a guided tour with the park service. Our guide was clearly on top of the subject and communicated and explained questions that were asked clearly and concisely and even better admitted when she did not know the answer. The ruins themselves are absolutely wonderful to allow true visualization of just that little bit to kind of understand what these people went through to set up a post in the new world. What we did not know is that we would end up visiting Port Royal later on our trip and this was a great intro to that magnificent site. Well worth it to do the guided tour we got so much more out of it.

The first residence of the governors of New France at Quebec City, the ruins of the Chateau Saint-Louis give you perspective on a governor's life. Sundry artifeacts are on display, including a gold and turquoise hair pin, the most valuable fine. You can take a group tour but I enjoyed wandering at my own pace. From Dufferin Terrace there are openings to look down at the ruins, an enticement to visit. The entry fee was $8.50.

A guided tour is THE WAY to visit this archaeological site. Our guide really brought the place to live. I've never been happier we elected to take a tour instead of doing it on our own.
