Visit Morrin Centre, a multifunctional cultural facility. Set in a building that once served as a jail, the center includes exhibits related to the history of the building, and also acts as home to the Literary and Historical Society of Quebec. As well as showcasing the building's various uses over time, the center now acts as a museum of the city's English-speaking community. Take a tour of the extensive and well-appointed library, and view the temporary exhibits, displaying the works of English-speaking artists, scientists, and thinkers old and new. A visit to Morrin Centre represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Quebec City holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • A must place to visit during a vacation in Quebec city. I don't know why this place isn't better known but i think it's a shame.. Be sure to take a guided tour and stop by the library after your visit, it's just fabulous.
