This museum is a little gem right across the street from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Beautiful Inuit and Native Art. Our docent was very knowledgeable and excited about the collection. Exhibits follow the history of the Inuits and their contribution to Canadian culture....More

It was my first visit to the gallery. I wanted to see Jeweller Claudio Pino’s ring collection. Apotheosis of craftmanship. I also enjoyed the inuit art, very different from what I usually see or expected. Beautiful collection. A must see!
This is one of my favored places in Montreal and love to visit to see new Art and Craft by some of Canada's great Artiest.

Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
