The event will be held in historic Old Quebec City, known for its colonial buildings and architecture. Located on the shores of the St.Lawrence river, its preserved fortified walls and 400 year-old history make it member of UNESCO. The event will take place in the Musée de la civilisation, at the heart of Old Quebec. Nearly 460 exhibitions have been presented within the walls of the Museum since its opening, including dozens of internationally renowned exhibitions, several from prestigious museums, but most of them designed and imagined by the Museum. Musée de la civilization normally welcomes more than 600 000 visitors per year. In 2020, the museum collections consisted of more than 222 300 objects, 197 426 rare or old volumes as well as 1.2 linear km of archival records.
