  • Decent museum but overpriced for what it provides. Nice indigenous exhibit. Favorite item was the parka made from seal intestines (nature’s Gore-Tex). Museum pushes a political agenda...

  • Really enjoyed learning about the history and artefacts of Canadian first peoples. It's a simple and neat display. I wouldn't say it's a "must visit" unless you have time in Montreal or are passionate about Canada's native history. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.
  • Fantastic look into Canadian culture and history. It's also within walking distance to other great museums (The Montreal Museum of Modern Art is a must). Would definitely visit again.
