Dive into Quebec's popular culture at the POP Museum and discover the secrets of its intriguing Old Prison! 

At the POP Museum you will be delighted by the diversity of the permanent and temporary exhibitions on offer. You will become familiar with Quebec's popular culture as a whole, as the museum covers broad themes such as gastronomy, sports and music in Quebec. From superheroes to Quebec agriculture, there will be at least one exhibition to interest you! In this interactive and playful museum, the immersive experiences that blend the real and the virtual will call on your five senses.

Near the POP museum, you will have the opportunity to visit the Old Prison, considered a real must-see in Trois-Rivières. Built in 1822 and known for its particularly harsh living conditions, it is one of the oldest prisons in Quebec. In service until 1986, it remains almost unchanged today! You will walk through the corridors, cells and living areas such as the refectory, still as they were when prisoners were incarcerated there. Accompanied by a guide, you will also be given moving accounts of prison life.
