Musée de la civilisation
Located in Old Québec, not far from the St. Lawrence River, the Musée de la civilisation is an enormous (for Québec City, at least) museum with lofty ambitions. Exhibits cover just about every culture imaginable—at any given time you might find Greek sculptures displayed alongside totem poles, or an inquiry into Egyptian ideas of the afterlife juxtaposed with Australian aboriginal artworks. Even if you've been here before, every visit to the museum is, by design, a new experience.
