  • A small museum, but its worth a visit. Here is a collection of paintings by artists from Quebec. Especially I advise Art Nouveau Hall, there are the authors are very distinctive and recognizable. Modern part of the collection, which occupies a decent part of the Museum, I realized, but all the styles are collected here in a little, so everyone will leave satisfied.

  • Nice work of modern architecture built into historic buildings. Not bad better than organized the Pergamon museum in Berlin, which is painful to visit even if the content is fantastic.

  • This museum is located at a distance of Old Quebec, but we were walking, since the city is beautiful. The building consists of a part is a part. The collection of works of the Museum is not very big, but it's worth for the architecture of the building as well.
