  • Paid $9 CAD for a 30-45 minute tour. It was a simple tour of the building that has had many uses and tells many interesting stories. Tours of the library as it's current use, a science lab as it used ...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Had a fantastic guided tour with Eve on Friday. She was entertaining and informative and I cannot recommend this place enough. If you are making a trip to the Old City, be sure to check out the Morrin Centre.
  • Had an excellent and informative tour that ended in an absolutely beautiful library!
  • Happened across this place by accident. Took the tour with Andreanne who was wonderful! Seeing the prison section was quite the experience. This is a great place to duck into when you have an hour to kill while its raining. So please we visited.
