Two big problems here. Firstly, came to see the permanent collection and no prior warning that a large part is closed. Would have been nice to be told before buying our tickets, it was the historic rather than modern art that we came for. WHY COULD THE CLOSURE NOT BE ADVERTISED OR DISCLOSED AT THE TICKET DESK, THIS SEEMED A RIP OFF. Second big problem is the restaurant. Ordered brunch, it wasn't busy, but was pricey. Food was luke warm served on cold plates. Who wants cold eggs? Astounded that the waiter took my money (including tip) then returned to lecture me on tipping protocol in Canada and demanded a further $5. Quebecois friends outraged when I told them, I am happy to tip where service not surliness has been offered. THIS WAS OUR WORST EATING EXPERIENCE IN CANADA AND I STRONGLY RECOMMEND AVOIDING THIS PLACE. I have tried to award zero stars but cannot, hence 1 star rating.
Super cool museum. The Barbeau exhibit was inspiring. Great place to spend a winter afternoon. Thought the cafe could have been more welcoming...
went last week on a rainy day. paid full price only to find out, after the fact that that 1/3 of the museum with the historical artwork was closed for whatever reason. So the native artwork was nice but the modern and contemporary art sections were just awful. Have been to art museums in Philadelphia, Ottawa, Toronto, Washington D.C. etc.. and this was by far the most disappointing of all. Charging full price for us only going to be able to see 2/3 of the building did not help.
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.
Large museum with wide range of artworks, from historical to contemporary to First Nations culture, I respect every work very much. You would have to spend a whole day to absorb the art world!
