If you like Native American Art, visit this gallery. They have a wonderful array of pieces for sale, large and small, though they can be quite pricey. Happily, we did find something lovely that fit our budget. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and doesn't mind if you are just looking. They even recommended 2 good restaurants we would have otherwise... More

This gallery has some truly stunning Inuit pieces. Of course most of it is quite expensive, but you can take home a beautiful piece suitable for framing for about $15. They're called "art cards" but they are quite large, foam board mounted, and gorgeous.

If you are remotely interested in Inuit art visit this place. The work on display complements that which you can see in the Fine Arts museums both here and in Montreal. Very much appreciated that although we clearly were not intending to buy anything, a member of staff spoke to us at length, answered questions.

I collect Inuit art and the Brosseau gallery is head and shoulders above any other.I have visited this gallery every time I am in Quebec City and will continue to do so.

The glass window walls and sterile interior lends a big city ambience but with a cozy feel. Can't afford a sculpture? Then head on over to the Holiday Tree corner. I bought an igloo and some real mukluks there. People marvel at them when I'm entertaining for the holidays. Hit the right back and you can always bargain a little.... More

Go to the QC City Museum of Art to see the incredible pieces, all made by Inuit ("Eskimo") artists. The collection is too big to see all of it at the M of A, but you will get a good idea of its components.

Had the good fortune to have someone explain the meaning of some of the sculptures and place them in context for us. The art had an hypnotic effect. One could stay there for a long time just being with it.

Just fantastic Inuit carvings. It can get pricey, but you can negotiate. Do not buy ivory pieces if you're a Yankee. You'll never get it past customs and the store will not mail it to you. Sorry. Amusingly enough, as beautiful as the pieces are, the very best carvings were sent to the Museum of Civilization. If anything, if you... More

We passed by Galerie Art Inuit Brousseau on a carriage tour, and it was pointed out as one of the best Inuit art galleries in the world. What was in the window was amazing so I knew I'd be going back. The gallery used to be both a museum and a gallery and the quality of the pieces show. The... More

Like many galleries, this is really a shop. The inuit art is interesting: it's mostly sculptures from stone or bone. The staff are fairly knowledgeable about the art - in a general sort of way - and where it comes from. They told me that the art is not particularly 'traditional' to the inuit culture. It is a modern income... More
