A large variety of works. The audio tour was very helpful. The private collection on display was quite lovely. The museum was my teenaged daughter's favorite part of our trip.

Quite a walk to see it, but worth it. There is also a pretty fountain in the front / street area. We took a walking tour and got some good information about the sights.

Beautiful permanent exhibit with the works of Riopel, colorful and passioinate. The location is historical too, just on top of les Plaines d'Abraham. There are special themes yearlong. This can be done with the visit of the old town. For food lovers, the bistro has fine cuisine specialties that are worth the try. Nice surrounding in this part of the... More

The length of visit and grading, especially for out-of-towners, will depend on what exhibitions are on. We were very lucky to catch Inspiration Japon/Looking East which was on tour from the MFA in Boston and was excellent (and much quieter than similar exhibitions would be in London) and this affected our overall grading positively.

Visited with our teens in late December and it was fabulous. Even the 13-year-old, who wasn't very excited about going, had a great time. Peaceful, interesting and beautiful.

Admittedly, not my first choice for thing s to do in the Old City, but it was raining REALLY hard that day. Anyway, a neatly-organized look at Quebec, her artistes and a snapshot of her history.

Not as much to see as I'd expected, but what there was was nicely displayed and worth my time. Best collection of Inuit art I've seen. Glad to see the various cultures of Quebec highlighted.
