Summer is here and the sun is shining! We are happy to announce that we are re-opening our doors to visitors!

Starting on Tuesday the 30th of June, the Morrin Centre is offering tours again with certain guidelines. 

Our 30-minute tours will begin outside (rain or shine) where our guide will fascinate you with stories about the Literary & Historical Society of Quebec, the Morrin College, and Joseph Morrin. You will then be led into cell block A5 where you learn stories about the crimes of different prisoners. Of course, a 2-meter distancing is required at all times. Visitors will be able to discover our exhibit in cell block A6 on their own and then view videos in the College Hall.

Please dress accordingly. The Morrin Centre strongly recommend reservations
