  • Beautiful old English library in Old Quebec! We were only able to visit the library section as they only run tours of the rest of the centre on Fridays, but still a lovely visit. You have to take off your shoes in the back room before going upstairs so that you don't ruin the floors.
  • My husband and I had a great time on our tour of the Morrin Centre. Our guide, Gabrielle, was such a treat. She kept things interesting and fun. There’s a ton of history in this library.
