I personally thought this was a cute little attraction on my way to the distillery district. There are plenty places to see around the harbourfront when you explore the city. This is a cozy little shop/gallery where you can buy plenty of beautiful inuit art....More

This small museum in a harborfront shopping gallery has a fairly representative collection of Inuit art. It also has a young and enthusiastic staff to discuss the art with you. It also has well-done signage that explains what you're looking at. My wife and I...More

I have never seen so much Inuit art in one place! It also traces the history of Inuit art with pieces of each era. If you enjoy Inuit art or want to learn about it, this is the place to go. Definitely a hidden gem.

Being from the states I don't know much about Inuit culture. The staff here are very eager to answer any questions and show you around. The gift shop was amazing with art by many current artists of the highest quality.

I had no problem finding it though some reviewers seemed to be complaining about the difficulty of finding the place. I quite enjoyed the art exhibitions at the museum. Some pieces were amazing!!!The admission was waved the day of my visit. It was definitely worthwhile.

Had to ask in the nearby hotel as there are no signs. Fantastic exhibits and well worth a visit but the video sound is very poor and really I'm not sure what the videos are for.
