The Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec, located on the Plains of Abraham, is one of the hidden gems of Quebec City. And while today it may offer world-class traveling exhibitions, and impressive permanent collections, the Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec was once a prison for some of Quebec City's most hardened criminals. The Musée Nationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec offers prison tours in the prison annexe, which contrasts strongly with the art in the museum wing and the human misery that was once contained within its walls. It is always a great option whenever the weather is not cooperating.
