Wow! Really impressive, we discovered quite a bit about the local industry in the past: paper making. Our 10 year old son was fascinating by the whole thing, and really enjoyed the workshop too (making your own paper). You must go there if you stop...MoreThank you for your great comment! We're very grateful that your family appreciated our museum.

Part of the Musee quebecois de culture populaire, The Old Prison of Trois-Rivieres opened in 1822 and was classified a historic monument. The guides (some of them are former inmates) will tell you about life in this prison closed in 1986 for unhealthy conditions. The cells and insolation cells will surely make you feel happy to be free! Time required for the visit: 1h15. The visit is not recommended for children under 12. Last visit one hour and a half before closing time.
We had a chance to go visit this old jail in Trois-Rivieres last week. Nice experience Something to do.. but will not go back
They offer limited visits for young persons.. they actually don't allow under 12 and it's not quite advertised.... be warned - they don't offered nothing but a visit or 2 sometimes the same day... make sure you will be able to go visit.. otherwise you will have to plan something in order to kill time..
Employees haven't propose anything but only that we would have to comeback ...
Our guide was quite outspoken and friendly and gave us an amount of info regarding stories and ways that this jail was ran at the time.

This religious and cultural heritage site is open to visitors. We stroll in the Gardens. The historic chapel, built in 1720, and the large basilica with its impressive stained glass are worth the detour. Picnic area, restaurant, gift shop are available. We also see the small oldest church.

You can't go to Trois Rivieres without walking to the Parc Portuaire. A very pretty area, very well designed with beautiful flowers and little "gardens", nice walking areas with beautiful vistas of the river. You can admire the historic houses with interesting architectural designs in the area. The information panels around the parc with period photographs were very informative. A must do!

The Musee quebecois de culture populaire bears witness to the unique identity of Quebec's diverse and evolving society. Its dynamic and bold Exhibitions are thought-provoking and encourage discovery. Adjacent to the Museum, the Old Prison of Trois-Rivieres, classified a historic monument, offers an unforgettable visit-experience behind bars.
A beautiful relatively new museum devoted to Québecois popular culture. When we were there there were three special Exhibitions including one on an (obviously) incredibly popular soap opera from the 1990s that non-Québecois can't possible relate to but that was nonetheless very interesting as a view into the culture; one on crime and criminals and one on sports and Québecois in sports. This was time very well spent. T-R has another truly impressive museum (Boréalis) and so the stop here (intended for no good reason other than to see a part of Q. other than Québec City and Montréal) was really a pleasure.
The museum building and its site in a quiet neighborhood within a few blocks of downtown are delightful.

Historic village where visitors learn about the workings of the iron and steel industry that was founded in 1730.
In the early 1700 s in New France, here outside Trois Rivières, along the St Maurice River, the first industrial site in Canada was founded. Locally surfaced mined bog iron ore, limestone and charcoal were transformed, first into pig iron before being turned into cannon balls, frying pans, cast iron stoves and various other iron products. This Parks Canada site - as all of them - are well run with informative videos and other displays and very helpful staff. For anyone technically inclined, curious about the origins of Canadian industry, this place is a must to visit.
