  • Nice little museum. The native exhibit was really well done if a bit short. It does a good job of building up the beauty of traditional life followed by the horrors of colonialism making what was lost feel really impactful. The 1800s pictures of Quebec was interesting and well layed out. Only losing a star because I felt it was a bit over-priced for what it was.
  • My family enjoyed this museum (with a 15 year old). Two exhibits were really impressive. A beautiful museum. It took about 2 hours to visit. Recommended.
