This small museum located just off the main street is a wonderfull opportunity to discover the magic of colorful naive art. Fun for all and free!

This free museum is part of the Visual Arts Center in Magog and is well worth a stop, especially if you like naive or primitive art (usually characterized by "childlike simplicity" and bright colors). There were three rooms: one devoted to naïve paintings, one to very detailed miniature dioramas, and one to paintings and sculpture in a competition (the art in the last room was not necessarily naïve). Although the diorama exhibit is gone now, it looks like they have other interesting exhibits coming up. Go to their website to see if anything interests you.

There was a friendly and enthusiastic receptionist/intern who gave us a guided tour (we were the only ones there). The tour added to the experience but is not necessary to enjoy the museum. You can see everything in under an hour, but if you like this type of art you may want to spend more time.

Although the museum is free, we put $5 in the donation box because it was so enjoyable.
