What to see in Trois-Rivières

Trois-Rivières, nestled along the Saint-Maurice River in Québec, is a historic city known for its rich heritage and vibrant cultural scene. Founded in 1634, it offers well-preserved sites, lively festivals and scenic riverfront views, blending historic charm with modern amenities for an unforgettable visitor experience.

The Old Prison of Trois-Rivières, a key historical attraction, offers a fascinating glimpse into the past. Built in 1822, this prison remained operational until 1986, making it one of the oldest functioning penitentiaries in Canada for much of its history. Today, it serves as a museum where visitors can take guided tours to learn about the harsh realities of prison life over the centuries. The tours, often led by former inmates or knowledgeable guides, provide a unique and personal perspective on the prison system's evolution and the day-to-day lives of those incarcerated. Walking through the narrow corridors and cramped cells, visitors can see firsthand the conditions that prisoners endured. The exhibits include stories of infamous inmates, the development of penal practices and the social implications of incarceration.

The Borealis Museum is another must-visit destination in Trois-Rivières. Housed in a former paper mill, Borealis delves into the region’s industrial heritage and the pivotal role it played in Canada’s paper industry. The museum offers interactive exhibits that cover the entire process of papermaking, from the harvesting of wood to the production of paper. Visitors can explore various thematic rooms, each designed to engage different senses and provide a comprehensive understanding of the industry. For instance, the water room highlights the importance of the Saint-Maurice River in powering the mills and transporting raw materials. Hands-on activities, such as making paper, allow visitors to engage directly with the materials and processes that define this industry. Additionally, the museum showcases the stories of the workers and their communities, offering a human perspective on the industrial narrative. Special exhibitions and educational programs often complement the main displays, making Borealis a dynamic and informative experience for visitors of all ages.

Parc de l’île Saint-Quentin is an oasis of natural beauty and outdoor recreation in Trois-Rivières. This expansive park, situated on an island at the confluence of the Saint-Maurice and Saint Lawrence Rivers, provides a perfect setting for a wide range of activities throughout the year. In the summer, the park's sandy beaches and clear waters attract swimmers, sunbathers and water sports enthusiasts. Canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding are popular ways to explore the waterways surrounding the island. The park also features numerous picnic areas, playgrounds and walking trails that meander through lush greenery and offer stunning river views. During the winter months, the park transforms into a snowy wonderland, with opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating. The well-maintained trails are suitable for all skill levels, and the scenic landscape provides a serene backdrop for winter activities. Seasonal events and festivals, such as outdoor concerts and holiday celebrations, add to the park's vibrant atmosphere, making it a year-round destination for both relaxation and adventure.
