Concierge.com's insider take:
There are more than 27,000 works of art here, from the beginning of the colony to the present. You'll discover countless artists whose haunting sculptures and paintings will leave you wondering why they are unknown outside Canada. The museum is housed in two buildings, one of them a former prison (one cell has been preserved as an exhibit), linked by a soaring glass-roofed hall. The café-restaurant serves up artistically presented food using Québec ingredients and commands a terrific view of Battlefields Park and the St. Lawrence River.
