Overview
More
L’ilot des Palais, major historic and archaeological site of the Capital, has opened its doors again to the general public on July 3rd 2014. It will present in its vaulted cellars from the 18th century a quite new immersive exhibition. Through techno-culture (ground mapping, projections, 3D…), families, tourists, both young and old people will be transported in the hectic life of this place, the Jean Talon Brewery, to the Palaces of the Intendant, the prisons and Stores of King in the Boswell brewery … Since 1982, 65 archaeological excavation worksites and more than 500 000 artefacts have made possible the promotion of this place of residence of the New France Intendant, place of the economic, social, judicial power… a visit at The Ilot des Palais is imperative to seize our history from the 14th century to nowadays. Surprising discoveries await you there! Among others, 4 Egyptian amulets found in one stratum of 1710 or still the bones of Samy, small poodle of the 18th century found in the latrines of the second Palace. Discover our GeoRallies with GPS : This activity was inspired by geocaching. You have to find 15 real or virtual caches linked to the Vieux-Quebec’s history. Whether you do it alone, with friends or family, you can live this adventure : with your own GPS or with our GPS.

The whole family had fun! The information given about the history was interesring and the younger kid (7yo) had fun guiding us with the GPS at least since he didn't find the reading as interesting as the rest of us. Good family activity.

This place is in Old Quebec and worth seeing. The bilingual exhibition is in the 18th century vaults of the palace of 3 Intendants including Intendant Jean Talon of New France. The building exterior and interior have been carefully restored and maintain an historical feel....More
