Musee National Des Beaux Arts Or Du Quebec, Quebec Reviews - Write a Review
Super nice staff and charming place but I didn't enjoy my experience there. I think the installation where poor on the background leaving people with few instruments to live the museum experience. Pity.
I was quite a bit disappointed in this Museum. During my stay in Quebec City it was the only time I wished I had done something else. Some exhibits were lovely, but on the whole there were issues. The staff was also moderately unfriendly. The lighting was quite poor and caused glares on most painting. The layout of the museum, and map, were confusing and wasteful. So much empty space! Sculptures in one room were 20 ft high in the air and could not even remotely be enjoyed or appreciated. The restaurants both close for a siesta, but that was not advertised anywhere. Glad I didn't pay full price and I hope you won't either.
It's a pretty tranquil museum without any heavy metal music or gangster rap, but it's good for visual arts. I enjoy audio arts more than visual. I'm an audiophile.
I've been to a lot of museums -- DC, London, NYC, Rome, etc -- but for some reason this place captivated my mind like few other art museums have... Thought-provoking postmodern work (not just canvas splashes, which can get old). The religious art exhibit (temporary, I believe -- so go while you can!) was unexpectedly powerful. Went in not expecting too much, but ended up as one of the highlights of my whole trip.
The buildings are beautiful, and the collection is pretty good with the Canadian artwork being the most unique and extensive. Wasn't thrilled with the guards/docents, several of whom were very rude and constantly asking my girlfriend and I to show them our wrist bands (over a dozen times in an hour, and I'm not exaggerating). We were both wearing short sleeves with the wrist bands on our wrist, so it's not like they were improperly displayed. After coming here from the beaux-arts museum in Montreal, i was pretty disappointed.
