We are so very interested in art and architecture and we we very impressed with how the City of Quebec rehabilitated another prison building and included it in the National Art Museum. The appreciation for older architectural treasures is to be appreciated. So, too, for the Morrin Centre. It too was built as a prison. The building itself is another gorgeous example of skill of the local masons. It now houses a museum, a library and the original cells, which you can tour. Just another sticking architectural treasure.

I want to give this place 5 stars. It SHOULD get 5 stars, but I just can't do it. The museum is FANTASTIC, and they have put SO much work into the exhibits, but they make you go on the tour to see them, and then they run you in and out of the rooms too fast to see/read/ or even look at everything. I am a VERY quick reader and general move through museums super-fast, so I can't imagine how the typical tourists felt.

Overall, go to this place if you have time, but not worth basing your day around--at least not right now. Maybe once things slow down a bit?

The history and the great people that talked on the tour were full of great knowledge, that made it fun and interesting . The original prison is still there, along with the changes to a school later and its current facility now. A real awesome library for English books,
There is a book written about the prison from a well known murder mystery author also.

Friendly guides who brought history to life, not very crowded at all, were the only two people on the tour and loved every minute of it. So much history in one building and truly brought to life by the museum itself and the staff, extremely reasonable and a breathtaking, fully operational library to top it all off.

Lived in Quebec city for 3 years and I didn't even know about this place. My husband being Scottish, we decided to visit that place. Crazy history and amazing english library. Prison turned into a college??? Just so many questions!!! Worth going and taking the tour for sure. I dare you to not feel some vibes in there!!!
