The 200 year old Morrin Centre was Quebec City’s first ever prison. Today it is a museum and a learning centre, and is home to the city’s only English library.

The Morrin Centre is a National Historic Site of Canada, as it dates back to 1712. The former prison was once home to the city’s first Anglophone institute of higher education, while today it houses the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec.

Take a tour of the buildings and explore the jail cells, including those used for inmates on death row and in isolation. You will also be taken to the chemistry lab of the historic college and will learn about the charming Victorian library.
