Overview Services

Within the walls of Montréal’s old prison, known as the Pied-du-Courant, the Centre d’exposition La Prison-des-Patriotes recalls the rebellions of 1837 and 1838, the Patriotes and their enemies as well as the imprisonment of 1,300 people, 12 of whom were hanged. Guided visits describe the prisoners' living conditions, the building's architecture and the political motivations of the Patriotes.
