The Musée POP bears witness to the unique identity of Quebec's diverse and evolving society. Its dynamic and bold exhibitions are thought-provoking and encourage discovery. Adjacent to the Museum, the Old Prison of Trois-Rivieres, classified a historic monument, offers an unforgettable visit-experience behind bars.

If you are a Quebec enthusiast then visit. Not a lot to see in the museum overall. Not all the explanations are translated into English. For kids I would pick something else.

Trois Rivieres is a convenient rest stop between Montreal and Quebec City. This museum has a couple of nice exhibits related to the culture of the area. Of particular interest was the exhibit on comics.

Visited the old jail. The things that were happening in this jail until 1986 are unbelievable. You won't believe it !

Although some English based explanations were left wanting, the museum in a whole was a great experience to come in contact with some Québécois culture. Most of the expos were interactive, aimed at children of course but still quite entertaining.

As an American the Musee Quebecois De Culture Populaire's exhibit of La Petite Vie was just a mystery to me. The exhibit didn't clear up the mystery one bit. The sound from the massive group of children in the large echoing lobby was almost unbearable....More

A beautiful relatively new museum devoted to Québecois popular culture. When we were there there were three special exhibitions including one on an (obviously) incredibly popular soap opera from the 1990s that non-Québecois can't possible relate to but that was nonetheless very interesting as a...More
