“Definitely worth visiting”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

The museum has a good collection of mostly contemporary Quebec art. Really enjoyed our visit. However, the museum restaurant was not very good. There is a snack bar in the new annex which may be better.

“Beautiful setting - interesting art”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

The museum has a beautiful setting, and it is a very interesting building. We visited on a Sunday afternoon, and it was practically empty, so there was plenty of time to look at the art. We focused on two temporary exhibits, and I was glad to find explanations in both French and English.

Great location with wonderful exhibits and a restaurant with outdoor seating overlooking the Plains of Abraham and the sea way . Amazingly good food and service at very reasonable prices.

“Great museum, absolute worth visiting”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

This museum is underrated in the guide books, although a bit out of the way, it is a must see for art lovers while in Québec city. Modern and contemporary art in a lovely building. Go see it!

“Excellent collection”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

My daughter (an art major) and I enjoyed a half day here. The contemporary collection here is lovely and worth the visit. One half of the museum is housed in a building that used to be the jail for Quebec. There are some cells still intact to see how prisoners lived.
