The museum of Inuit art is on the Queens quay by the harborfront centre. It's a small museum and is very pretty. Just by its artwork it speaks volumes of the Inuit culture. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and can't wait to go again!

I just found this while walking around the Harbourfront Centre. It is a very small and inexpensive museum devoted exclusively to Inuit Art and culture - people of the Artic. They had a delightful collection of sculptures and prints.

It is a very small museum with wonderful art.

It is hard to find. There is no signage out by the street. Even though the museum is MIA it is worth search.

Whatever your familiarity with Inuit art, this small museum displays hundreds of items in permanent and changing exhibits. Sculpture, prints, drawings and textiles from many Arctic communities are a visual delight and evidence the variety of Inuit arts.

Good for a quick visit, this tiny museum houses some lovely pieces but in other respects looks like a very large gift shop (the gift shop itself is pretty sparse). Admission is not too expensive. Curating could be improved; it seems pitched to middle school visitors. The large map of First Nation territories in present-day Canada is very informative.

The museum is located in a large commercial-looking building and is hard to find if you enter directly from Queen's Quay - it's on the opposite side of building.

We're real fans of Inuit art. I'm glad we went, but I wish I could give it a higher rating.
