There are three floors of interesting pictures, forms, tapestries and other forms of art. All are very interesting, even if one doesn't know or appreciate such things.

Much improved. The CHARLES BAILLAIRGÉ PAVILION is worth a visit in its own right. Well displayed.Take in the Plains of Abraham while you are there.

Excellent exhibits, too much modern and avant-garde art for our tastes but a good collection of other art as well. On a nice day it's a long but manageable walk from the old city.

Excellent gathering of Quebecois Art. Three buildings. I loved the old jail. The new building has a phenomenal display and narrative of Inuit carvings. Really breath-taking on many levels. Beautiful temporary exhibit of Pierre Bonnard. Well worth the visit.

Did not expect this to be about local arts but it was exceptionally well represented. The museum itself is well-designed, open, covering historic to contemporary/modern art. I really enjoyed the modern section with the works of Pellan and Riopelle. There are food options from fine...More
