  • The exhibition of Giacometti was beautiful and I recommend taking the hearing aid for a better visit. The Museum restaurant is excellent but make a reservation if not you won't have a place.

  • Some of the best contemporary collections in Toronto. A mind blowing installation hides in the historical wing. Finally, the modern art wing is housed within the prison adds a whole extra level immersion. Highly recommended, one of the better ways to spend time when exploring Quebec City
  • Beautiful museum with amazing exhibitions. If you like art you will enjoy this museum. There are several buildings that make up this museum with an underground passage connecting all of them. The museum is located off Battlefields park and a walk through the park after visiting the museum is really worth it !
  • The best art museum in town. Modern and traditional art. Local and international artists.
  • This is a nice large museum. It has various art sections and one of them is in an amazing lighthouse building. The entrance fee isn't too cheap so I would check if there is something that you want to see beforehand
  • Many expositions to look at, little chance of getting bored. I had a lovely time and saw some great art.
