Landmark with cultural flair.
There is history in this building which doubles as an art gallery. Outside there are many local exhibits available for tourists to see. The staff here are very knowledgeable about both the history and the art. Very accommodating place with friendly staff.

Come and visit the oldest jail in Ontario and the second oldest jail in Canada. The L'Orignal Old Jail is a unique tourist attraction in eastern Ontario. Open to the public since June 2007, the historic building motivates people from the surrounding region and elsewhere to soak in the penitentiary atmosphere of long ago. From June 1st until Labour Day, the prison is open seven days a week between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. Venez visiter la plus ancienne prison en Ontario et la deuxieme plus ancienne au Canada. L'Ancienne Prison de L'Orignal est une attraction touristique tout a fait unique dans l'Est ontarien. Ouvert au public depuis juin 2007, le batiment historique incite les gens de la region et de partout dans le monde a se submerger dans l'atmosphere carceral d'antan. A partir du 1er juin jusqu'a la fete du travail, la prison est ouverte 7 jours par semaine et ce, de 10h a 16h.

Don't miss it - do the FULL DAY!
We had an incredible time!! Our guide Terry Jo was INCREDIBLE (seriously, ask for him - you WON'T regret it). We recommend the full-day adventure and go with the chicken or vegetarian wrap for lunch and the for dinner I loved the salmon, but Drew was all about the steak and potatoes. Give yourself extra time to stick around for the video viewing after - so much fun to watch with all your rafting buddies :) Here's our post for more tips and awesome photos!http://mrandmrsadventure.com/2015/07/14/nouveau-monde-whitewater-rafting-down-canadas-epic-riviere-rouge/

Un rêve devenu une réalité!
DK TRAVEL a bien rempli son mandat de nous faire découvrir les trésors d’Egypte. La splendeur des grandes pyramides, le site d’Abou Simbel avec les deux majestueux temples de Ramsès ll et son épouse Néfertiti, le musée Égyptien du Caire et toutes ses collections ne sont que quelques-uns de mes coups de cœur. Que dire d’une aventure dans le désert en jeep ainsi qu’un tour de montgolfière au levée du soleil à côté de la vallée des rois et d’une balade à chameau. Ce fut un séjour mémorable et inoubliable. Merci à toute l’équipe de DK Travel!
