This Museum is very small, not a lot of options to see, maybe 40 minuts is ok. The service is very Nice. You can find an expensive gallery If you re looking art to buy.

I collect Inuit carvings and this museum/gallery is one of the best in the world. The pieces for sale are outstanding, almost all carved by well known people. The prices, although high, are very fair. You would pay more in other galleries. The museum portion...More

Small gallery with polite staff, this museum introduced us to Inuit mythology and the different media and crafts by Inuit artists. Perfect for a rainy day, and interesting enough to spend a whole afternoon reading all the information accompanying the exhibit.

Beautiful artwork...but I have never been an art collector. Even if I had a ton of mad money I probably still would not own much artwork, but I do appreciate the craftsmanship and natural beauty of Inuit art.

the Museum of Inuit Art, located on the waterfront is a thing of beauty, from the design of the gallery space, its furniture and of course its collection of artifacts, sculptures, textiles, prints, and so much more, all excellently displayed and identified.

This is very subjective because I am not a museum person, the exhibition is interesting but lacks interactivity so it bored me a bit. But if you take the time to read all the descriptions it will be a good learning experience. The pieces of...More
