6 Charles Baillairgé Pavilion of Fine Arts Museum in Québec City, Canada

At the west end of Battlefields Park is the National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec. The first of the museum’s four buildings you will encounter is the Charles Baillairgé Pavilion. This was a prison for over a century from 1867 until 1970. The former city jail is named after Charles Baillairgé. He was a prolific 19th century architect in Québec City. He was also the designer of some of Canada’s most famous government structures on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. After an extensive renovation by the museum, this pavilion opened in 1991. Inside are exhibits of modern art and a small café.
