  • Amazing historical place! Very educative and interesting. English library in Old Quebec, with books for all ages. A must visit! Guided tours available. The entire place scream for history. Simply beautiful.
  • Fabulous library here and our guide Sebastian was amazing. Not to mention we got a chance to see the jail...that was interesting. It's great learning the history of Quebec City. Puts what you see around you in perspective.
  • Amazingly beautiful and so neat! The history behind it is amazing! Worth a visit and a look around. Architecture is gorgeous. Love that they care for the place so much that they provide Crocs for visitors to wear inside the library.
  • What a charming and delightful place to visit! My wife and I were glad that we chose to stop in and tour the Morrin Centre. Be sure to take a tour so that you can see the jail cells and classrooms. Our tour guide, Sebastian, kept things fun while informing of us of the Center’s history. A must visit if you’re in Quebec City.
  • Beautiful, stunning, gorgeous old building. English language library in Old Quebec. Wish we'd found it in week 1.
