A Unique Site
The Royal 22e Régiment Museum features medals, uniforms, sketches, weapons, as well as letters and manuscripts showing the importance of military life on the site of the Quebec Citadelle.

French and British Regime
Most of the museum’s collection covers the First World War onwards, and therefore follows the regiment since its creation in 1914. Replicas of old uniforms, the Saint-Louis Cross, letters and documents signed by Montcalm or Murray and dual pistols are only some of the artifacts on display as part of the French and British regime collection.

Changing of the Guards
The museum is located in an old 1750 French powder factory turned into a British military prison in 1842. The documentation is offered in six languages. During the summer, you can also watch the Changing of the Guards ceremony, as well as go on an adventure with a guided visit.
