Come admire generations of art from several regions of arctic Canada. Be drawn in to the tiny, gorgeous sculptures as well as temporary exhibits (currently photos documenting climate change by youth photographers). Quiet space, perfect for contemplation. I am so glad I went.

The museum of Inuit art is on the Queens quay by the harborfront centre. It's a small museum and is very pretty. Just by its artwork it speaks volumes of the Inuit culture. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and can't wait to go again!

I just found this while walking around the Harbourfront Centre. It is a very small and inexpensive museum devoted exclusively to Inuit Art and culture - people of the Artic. They had a delightful collection of sculptures and prints.

It is a very small museum with wonderful art. It is hard to find. There is no signage out by the street. Even though the museum is MIA it is worth search.

Whatever your familiarity with Inuit art, this small museum displays hundreds of items in permanent and changing exhibits. Sculpture, prints, drawings and textiles from many Arctic communities are a visual delight and evidence the variety of Inuit arts.

Good for a quick visit, this tiny museum houses some lovely pieces but in other respects looks like a very large gift shop (the gift shop itself is pretty sparse). Admission is not too expensive. Curating could be improved; it seems pitched to middle school...More

Located in downtown Toronto and by the Harbourfront Centre, the little MIA is a wonderful place to learn about Inuit art. The museum is inside a larger building on the ground floor, so don't look for a separate building. The fee is small compared to...More

We visited this museum on 18 April. Because of some nearby construction work some of the exhibits were covered to protect them from dust, this did not however detract from our enjoyment of this extraordinary and fascinating exhibition of Inuit art. Most of the art...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
