Entering the Old Prison of Trois-Rivières is much more than just a visit to a historic building; it’s a glimpse at prisoners’ living conditions in the penal system of the 1960s and 1970s.

(Museum)
Prison built in 1822 and classified as a historic monument. Before it closed in 1986, it was the oldest operating penitentiary in Canada. More than just a tour, a trip to the old prison is a foray into life "inside", brought to you by guides. The tour of the cells and dungeons is sure to astound. An experience brought to you by the Musée québécois de culture populaire.
