“Well-Designed Museum Filled with Fascinating Artifacts”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Excellent museum -- easy to navigate, filled with a dazzling array of permanent and traveling exhibits. It's also not overwhelming, so you can see everything within a couple of hours.

“Great Museum”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is a major human history museum and very well done. The main floor exhibit about Quebec History and the special traveling exhibit (Samurai Armor) were the best. I thought the Native American art exhibit was weaker (I've seen better). Definitely worth a visit, especially if there is a visiting exhibit you are interested in. The snack bar was actually quite good. Everyone does food well in Quebec, even the museum snack bars.

“Excllent Museum”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We were fortunate enough to catch the Samurai exhibit, which was large and impressive. They also had the Anderson and Low photograhy exhibit. Finally, we saw a Japanes kimono exhibit. All were quite enjoyable.

“Samurai exhibit was wonderful!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

A wonderful afternoon! The exhibits are well setup, lighting is perfect and, even though it was busy, we did not feel crowded which was very nice. We visited the rest of the museum too and it was just as well setup. Definitely a place to visit!
