This art museum has real strengths in displays of local artists, sculptures, furniture and the like but little of an International scale. I found the quality of the displays to be excellent with varying approaches dependent on the articles to be shown. An unexpected quality...More

This brand new pavilion just opened a few months ago. It is on the grounds of the MNBAQ. The wide white swirling staircase is a visual beauty. The architect thought of every detail. As the brass coloured doors of the elevator opens you can see...More

Amazing museum extremely friendly to visitors (exhibitions and staff). If you love art, this place is for you. There is no discussion on that. It doesn't matter if you like historic, modern, contemporary, local, all around or even the craziest ideas of some artist, all...More

A bit pricey to get in ($16pp) but recommended none-the-less. Lots to see over three buildings so you can get your money's worth. Particular highlight was the Inuit art exhibition with iPads with stories behind the art.

Mixed feelings about this Museum. I would only make a trip here if you had extra time to kill and if there was a temporary exhibition you wanted to see. There's 3 main buildings - all connected together. The main entrance was on the back...More

Well done museum, a great tribute to the city's concern for the arts. A nice place to walk to whether you take the Grand Allee or walk through the Plains of Abraham. The architecture nicely combines three structures including the old jail. The collection is...More

we were there in May. As it was cold outside, we decided to visit the Musee. It was interesting as the Musee offers various exhibits for a period of time. Location is great. Price is really affordable.

The three pavilions are all beautiful spaces. And are very white and clean like most galleries. There is a good amount of modern art, but it doesn't get too conceptual for the most part and definitely tantalizes the senses. We easily spent 4-5 hours there...More

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
