  • This activity takes place during the Halloween period. I went with my son and we really loved the experience. Dismal atmosphere, clear explanation, easy index found but in the context or a zombie Chase you... not so easy! We will definitely return next year!

  • If you're the type to fear by listening to a horror movie, this is not for you! Instead, if you're not scared, night of horror of the Morrin Centre will meet your expectations!

  • The Morrin Centre is a place to visit. I would like to thank Sarah for adding visual details and humor to our tour. She made it a wonderful experience to remember. Thank you Sarah. Also, remember to take the time to visit the library, enjoy the historical books and quiet time.
  • This place is a Hidden Gem I strongly recommend anybody in Quebec to stop by this place well worth the trip
  • Anglophone library with old architecture. Really nice place to read a book or work.
  • It is a wonderful place to study relax or interact with the English Canadian Culture. And I must say, it is a magical place for booklover like me!
  • 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.

Where to stay in Quebec City

Most accommodations cluster on the west side of the St. Lawrence River, with the city's split-level old town offering the widest range of options and best access to top attractions. Stay in the upper town to be close to the castle and enjoy views over the river. What the lower town lacks in panoramas, it makes up for in historic charm and access to riverside cafes and restaurants. If you want a less-touristy experience, consider the up-and-coming neighborhood of St. Roch, whose cafes, bars, restaurants, and artistic spaces make it an alternative traveler's paradise.
