The Museum of Inuit Art is the only museum south of the arctic dedicated to caring for, preserving and displaying Inuit art. This award-winning museum offers low admission rates, a beautiful atmosphere and plenty of activities, including docent tours, special exhibitions in the Aboriginal Voices gallery and our Friday Collectors’ Nights. The Museum of Inuit Art Gallery is a non-profit entity, which supports the Museum of Inuit Art with all proceeds from gallery sales. This gallery showcases prominent Inuit artworks for sale working within the equitable Inuit owned and operated cooperatives and art marketing systems. Inside the gallery is the Global Inuit Art Project, a comprehensive resource of information and services benefiting Inuit artists, collectors and enthusiasts alike.
MIA is located at 207 Queens Quay West in the historic Queens Quay Terminal building by Toronto’s harbourfront. The Museum is open 7 days a week from 10AM to 6PM. Every Friday night from 7-9PM we offer our Collectors’ Night program for $10. Come for a private tour of the museum followed by a talk about how to select Inuit art. Wine and hors d’oeuvres are served while you socialize.
Founded in 1981, the Eskimo Art Gallery has a long tradition of presenting the finest contemporary Inuit art from the Canadian North.

Our services also include art consulting, as well as a comprehensive corporate gift program. We work directly with many of the Inuit Artists.
