Musée de la Civilisation director Stéphan La Roche (right) slices the cake for the museum’s 30th birthday on Oct. 19. It was baked on site.

For a place that presents exhibits that span millennia, the Musée de la Civilisation de Québec is actually a young place. The museum celebrated its 30th birthday over the past week. For this milestone, it opened its doors to the public and held unique activities from Oct. 19 to 21 – three days to celebrate three decades.
