Owner description: A museum on the history of this small coastal city, with exhibits on its famous residents, such as Jacques Cartier.

Worth a visit just to see the inside of the Chateau. Some interesting sections on the relationship between France and Canada. Didn't go right to the top of the tower as the steps are very steep and narrow, but the views from the lower gallery are excellent.

This museum provides documents showing the life of the sailors who headed for Terre neuve in search of cod fishing. Many photos of their difficult living, model boats, maps. The views from the top are great, especially of the bay, remparts and beaches.

Housed in the old Chateau, this museum tells among other things the story of the exploration of Canada by French seafarers. Model boats, weapons, maps.... Not your kind of thing? Well, the views from the top are super, but be warned, there are lots of steep steps to climb.

Lots to see and the combined ticket gets you free into the sister museum in Saint Servan which is a nice fifteen minute walk from the town centre. My 12 tear old was genuinely interested so I was pleasantly surprised because a lot of these museums tend to bore kids.

The exhibits are a random hodge-podge that are supposed to relate the history of the city but are really a jumbled assortment of artwork, ship models, furniture, etc. It's a disjointed display. The only worthwhile item was the view from the top floor at the look out tower.
