Sentenced to One Night

(Activity just for groups, not available in July and August) 

Experience life behind bars in the history-rich Old Prison of Trois-Rivières by spending the night in an authentic jail cell.


On your arrival you will be greeted by the warden. You will then be booked, fingerprinted, photographed and issued your prisoner’s T-shirt. The warden will guide you and your group to the incarceration wing. Here, between stone walls that once housed the condemned, a former inmate will recount the penal life of yesterday and today. You will then spend the night with your cellmates under the warden’s supervision, as so many hardened criminals have before you.On the following day, you will clean up the wing and proceed to breakfast; porridge and toast. A meal fit for a prisoner. Before leaving the prison, the warden will hand over your prisoner’sfile with a stamp marked RELEASED.
