We particularly found the Inuit art to be fascinating, and the narrative flow of the museum is just lovely. The story of Canada in its art! more »
I went for Picasso exhibit and it was great, but overall where the 17th and 18th century art is kept is worthwhile. The rest... I never find modern art with 1960s furniture on display inspiring. more »
So cool - so much to see. Nice way to spend the day. Wont post pics becayse you need to check out the art in person. But had a nice soup at lunch and saw interesting exhibits in a lovely setting. You can check your coats/bags.
It's a great place to hang out with. And to get inspired. But of course we cannot compare it with the other big museums from Europe. But it does have a good collection. The environment is perfect. And the place has quite a bit of historical significance. You also get a good look at the Saint Lawrence River.
