“A Small and Simple Must Do”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Monteral has its fill of museums and Inuit craft stores - but this little two roomed gem is worth seeking out. i visited (from Ireland) at a time when the ethongraphic museum was closed but the very warm and knowledgeable curator (Diana) responded to my dissapointment and gave me a guided tour and introducuction to the old tools and photographs upstaris. She really made the artefacts come alive and opened up my understanding of how why the contemporary art is as it is. A wonderful counterpoint to the pieces by current artists in the gallery downstairs and just 5 minutes walk from the Museum de Beaux Arts. Time well spent.

“Worth visiting!”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

It was my first visit to the gallery. I wanted to see Jeweller Claudio Pino’s ring collection. Apotheosis of craftmanship. I also enjoyed the inuit art, very different from what I usually see or expected. Beautiful collection. A must see!
