Beautiful artwork, great audio tour and a unique look at an important period of history and the people who created the artwork.

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. Any piece would be a nice investment for the home I think. I just think this place is absolutely adorable in between walks. Also, the employees are very kind and knowledgeable!

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 are dealers in Inuit art and we see a great deal of it, but we're always happy to see more and to see unfamiliar works by favorite artists. For people unfamiliar with Inuit art, this museum would be a good introduction. You'd leave knowing a little about Inuit culture and 20th century history. Some experts and art dealers might be a little snooty about the collection, but it is what it is and that ain't bad.

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.
