About this event

Built over 200 years ago to house a prison, the Morrin Centre is now also home to one of the world's most beautiful libraries. Visitors will discover a hidden and almost unknown part of the city’s history by exploring the building’s past, including the life of its prisoners and the conditions of their imprisonment, the classes taught at the city's first English-language institute of higher education; the Morrin College and then, be spellbound by the haunting stories surrounding our charming Victorian Library, home to a collection of literary gems, some of which date back to the 16th century.

Discovery tours are offered from Fridays to Sundays, in both official languages.

(Please note that family tickets (2 adults, 2 children aged 9 - 17) can be purchased at the Morrin Centre).
