“What an absolute treat.”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Don't miss this museum. It's a bit of a walk to get to but worth all the effort. Housed in a former prison, it is truly special. The arched ceilings and the glorious colour of the bricks. We went to see the Brousseau Inuit sculpture and art exhibit. We loved it. What a perfect place for a museum such as this. Climb the watch tower and see the art installation there. We were so glad we went.

“Great show at the moment and great restaurant!”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Our visit found us enjoying a special exhibit of Lady Artists from Mexico and the United States - doing surreal stuff! Great exhibit, great permanent exhibits, especially the Inuit Art. And lunch...... at the restaurant on premise was lovely!

“Interesting paintings and First Nation art”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

After a long walk from the city wall, we reached the museum. To the right of the entrance was an exhibit of paintings and to the left upstairs we found First Nation sculpture. As this was a prison morphed into a museum, pause at some of the prison cells in between.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

An excellent collection which gives additional insights into the history and culture of Quebec. The buildings themselves are worth going to see! You can see all the permanent collections for free, so accessible to anyone.
