About the Museum
The Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec is primarily focused on displaying, promoting and preserving art from Québec, while also exploring a range of works and exhibitions by international artists. It has been the only museum in the world dedicated solely to Québec art since it was established more than 80 years ago. The collection includes over 39,000 works dating from the 17th century to the present day, and is housed across four pavilions that sit within the National Battlefields Park. The newest of these, the dynamic Pierre Lassonde pavilion, was designed by OMA New York in association with Provencher_Roy. Opened in 2016, it doubled the museum’s floor space and hosts work from the museum’s contemporary, design and Inuit collections alongside temporary exhibitions.
