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.
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.
It's a place for people who understand and appreciate art. I don't happen to be one of such people. Some of the art forms look interesting at the face of it. I was more amused, but maybe something epic for the learned. If you think any of the following pics make sense, you should visit. Don't visit the galleries with small children as they will get bored. There is a designated play area for children.
Amazing art museum. It focuses on Quebecois art so there is not a lot of classical or historical work, but once in a while, there might be an exhibition. I easily spent 3 hours here looking at the collection they have here. This is must-go if you enjoy modern and contemporary art.
There are not many good collections of arts. It has mix and match, fine arts, contemporary arts and modern arts. Part of the museum was the old prison. The new modern building is beautiful. The special exhibition on Berthe. Marisot is excellent. Inuit art collection is very interesting.
