The Inuit exhibit was fascinating. The contemporary art is of little interest to me and the more traditional section was closed for renovations. So, all in all, if you are not a fan of abstract art the rest of the museum will be unappealing to...More

We're not really modern art folks and that is primarily what this museum features, but the Inuit sculptures were phenomenal. I wanted to bring one home! Got the book instead.

We toured at least a portion of this museum over a couple of hours. There was a lot of walking to find any exhibits at all. Some were interesting, but many we missed because you get no directions on how to find them.

Head to the top floor for a great collection of Inuit sculptures. Loads of other art too. You need a few hours to do this place justice.

I know the area very well. There is a large parking lot adjacent to the Museum, on its East side. It is not free, but rates are reasonable. There is also plenty of metered parking along the street, just West of the Museum... More
