Musee National Des Beaux Arts Or Du Quebec, Quebec Reviews
Beautiful museum. Very modern and elegant. Easy to navigate. The exhibitions were perfect when I was there. It was also not very busy so it helped to be able to see it all quickly. Some extremely rare pieces on exhibition from private collectors as well. All in all, a place I recommend visiting while in Quebec City. Finally, the price is reasonable to enter the exhibition.
Went on a Wednesday evening when admission is half price. The building itself is worth the visit, with a marvellous entrance hall and the biggest elevator I've been in, with gold sliding doors and an internal mirror to make it look huge. We saw the Berthe Morisot exhibition which is wonderful, with over 50 works gathered from world galleries. The modern Québec artists were not to our taste, but you've got to have freedom of expression! Great place with a restaurant and café and well worth the visit.
This place was really cool. We got a discount because we're a couple under 30. They have a gorgeous garden, and they have some really cool exhibitions. I would definitely recommend this place if you're staying in Quebec City.
My wife and I spent a few hours here on our trip to Quebec City. What an amazing place! The museum is well designed. We went through all of the exhibits and thoroughly enjoyed them. We stopped for lunch at the museum restaurant and had a wonderful multi-course lunch for a very reasonable price. Staff was friendly and helpful. We even stopped at the gift shop for a few mementos. A must see if you are visiting the city.
Great place for parties but as a real museum it seemed a bit sparce. But this is because of waning interest in art in Quebec City... for a museum to survive they must also have big social events.
