About the Museum:

The Canadian Museum of Nature is Canada's national natural history and natural sciences museum. Located minutes from Parliament Hill, in downtown Ottawa, it is housed in a striking, historic "castle" that once served as Canada's Parliament.

Visitors can explore Canada's natural treasures and environments, including the Arctic. Get up close to giant dinosaurs, iconic Canadian mammals, a complete blue what skeleton, dazzling gems and minerals, and the largest collection of Canadian birds on display. Outside, explore three of Canada's eco-zones in the Landscapes of Canada Gardens.
