“Yes, You CAN afford it”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

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. The staff isn't snooty but are so well-groomed, at 1st sight, they seem intimidating but when they talk, you'll recognize a beautiful soul and be quite shocked. Seconds from the Chateau & Italian rest. Au Parmesan.

“Museum closed, but collection still available”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

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.

“Art, Story, Culture - encounter”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

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.

“The best part of rue St Louis”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

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 cannot afford it, browse around. The staff doesn't mind and they were more than happy to answer questions.

“A Must See in Quebec City”
Reviewed August 11, 2009

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 museum portion is now part of a larger museum in Quebec, but after four days of visiting shops selling Inuit art, I thought the works here the absolute best in the city. Yes, it is expensive, but you get what you pay for. Staff was equally friendly to buyers and people clearly just in for a look. Even if you have no interest in buying, it's worth going to take a look and hear about the history and culture of the art.
