For its anniversary, the Musée du Fort is adding new technology to improve the experience of his sound and light show.

The modernization of the show was made possible through a generous contribution from the Office du Tourisme de Québec, the Quebec City Local Development Centre, the Conférence des élus de la Capitale-Nationale, Tourisme Québec and the Secrétariat à la Capitale Nationale. A production team entirely from Québec (Productions Far East, Studio Element, 20k, XYZ Cultural Technology and Riki solutions) has revisited the entire show, using their talent and advanced technology (maping) to create even more visual effects.
