The Inuit collection is absolutely amazing. This private collection was purchased in tact for the museum and is housed in a dimly lit and mysterious gallery. The art speaks eloquently for itself, describing the harsh life of the north. Don't miss this exhibit.

Very interesting- you see the religious art, historical art areas for free as they are permanent exhibits. Wonderful cafe for lunch on site. Loved that they have the casts for many of the city's statues in this museum, telling the history of the artists lives as well as the artwork they created! Don't miss it!!!!

This is a pleasant museum, and worth visiting. There is an exhibit of native Canadian art - mostly small sculpture - that is worth a visit in itself. There were also rooms with art involving Quebec history, as well as contemporary Quebec art and European art. The museum has a slightly provincial flavor and if you're looking for a huge, Chicago- or Toronto- or Montreal-class museum, you will be disappointed. But it's got many smaller pleasures to enjoy. It is a very manageable excursion for the very same reason.

Most museums/etc give teachers a discounted entrance (sometimes it's free) - but this place, and the museum of civilization did not, they also didn't know very much about their own province, since no one knew NUNAVIK is in Quebec.

I have to say that I truly appreciate a museum that offers visitors their permanent collection free of charge. It surely brings people that otherwise may not try it out! And it is worth a visit. My kids LOVED the old prison (actual part of museum - attached). Their collection is solid and the architecture of the place is worth seeing. Just that it is situated on the Battle Field park is lovely enough. Take the time to walk along the waterfront and see the view - and get a pic on the canons!
