The tour presents the history of Québec. Accompanied by a guide-interpreter, the visitor traverses 4 great periods of history that impacted its development:

  • New France
  • The British Colonial Regime
  • The 19th and 20th centuries until 1960
  • The contemporary period from the Quiet Revolution to the present

This permanent exhibition situates the great founding moments of today's Québec. It is an interpretive synthesis of over four hundred years of history, full of meaning for today's citizens. People of Québec…Then and Now is the story of men and women, who through their aspirations, projects and achievements, created an original society and identity in North America. The exhibition unfolds chronologically and is divided into four "blocks of time", each immersing the visitor into a different era with the help of objects and artifacts, geographical maps and audiovisual documents.

The films were directed by filmmaker Benoît Pilon as part of a co-production involving Musée de la civilisation and the National Film Board of Canada.
