Photo : Jessy Bernier, Icône EGYPTIAN MAGIC AT MUSÉE DE LA CIVILISATION Now showing at Quebec City's Musée de la civilisation: an irresistible change of scenery and, what's more, a spellbinding experience for visitors. With the help of special lighting effects, as the exhibit shifts seamlessly from daytime to nighttime, you'll journey through an enchanting world of magic as practised in ancient Egypt - omnipresent in everyday life and in rituals aimed at establishing ties to the great beyond. For ancient Egyptians, magic was a supernatural source of wisdom. It was used by the gods to create the natural world and to provide humans with special powers that would help them survive. More than 300 objects are featured in the exhibition - some dating back 3,000 years - and have been loaned by several prestigious museums like Amsterdam's RijksMuseum, Paris' Louvre and London's British Museum. Statues, amulets, jewellery pieces, parchment, and old papyri are displayed against a fantastical backdrop of desert images, sand dunes and all. As in the past, the museum offers activities connected with the exhibition, including guided tours and family workshops where children can learn to create amulets and hieroglyphics. Until April 10, 2016. Adults: $12, 12-16 years: $5, 11 years and under: free. Musée de la civilisation, 85Dalhousie, Quebec City,1-866-710-8031, mcq.org
  • BIKING THE CHEMIN DU ROY
Yves Ouellet

Vieux-Trois-Rivières is a great bicycle run. Take a full day to explore the heritage of Trois-Rivières. Between Trois-Rivières and Quebec City, this historic route and the river move in tandem through a succession of stunning landscapes and old architectural gems. For cyclists, the 130-kilometre stretch of the Chemin du Roy - otherwise known as Route 138 - is heaven on earth.

  • SUVs: THE SAFEST WAY TO GO
Nadine Filion

Until the start of the new millennium, SUVs faced a variety of criticism. They were too big, more prone to rollovers than other vehicles, and they consumed tankfuls of energy. But advanced technology, especially in the realm of stability control, has dispensed with much of the negativity.
