En Prison

Lonely Planet review

Ex-cons bring the harsh realities of the lock-up vividly to life during 90-minute tours that include a stop at dank underground cells known as 'the pit.' English tours run between 11am and 3:15pm from late June to the end of August – and by reservation the rest of the year. The prison exhibit is connected to adjacent Musée Québécois de Culture Populaire , with its renowned regional folk art collection and changing exhibitions, which often have a quirky pop-culture bent.
