Current situation

Plains of Abraham Museum

The Plains of Abraham Museum has reopened on June 26. Nothing has been left to chance to ensure optimal sanitary premises so you can tour the Battles 1759-1760 and Identities exhibitions safely!

Wearing a face covering, also known as a homemade mask, is mandatory in the Museum since July 18 for people age 12 and over. Children under 12 years of age, people whose particular medical condition prevents them from wearing a mask and people who are unable to put on or take off a mask by themselves do not have to wear a face covering. However, for children between 2 and 12 years of age, wearing a face covering or mask is recommended.
