Arts & Museums

»Canada Aviation and Space Museum

Come see one of the finest collections of vintage aircraft in the world. Creative exhibitions and programs in this delta-shaped building make learning about aviation fun. Experience hang gliding on a simulator, sit at the controls of a Cessna, watch films of aircraft in action, tackle the helicopter studio or test your skills at video games and computer quizzes. You can even soar over Ottawa in a historical aircraft for a small fee. The museum is located along the Eastern Parkway near Rockcliffe.

»Laurier House

One of the most fascinating glimpses into Canada's political history can be had at this beautiful, oddly downscale Ottawa home. Originally home to Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier and later to William Lyon MacKenzie King, the home predates twenty-four Sussex Drive as the official residence of the Prime Minister. Famous visitors to the house include Winston Churchill and Charles de Gaulle.

»Ottawa Art Gallery

Owned and operated by the City of Ottawa, this is one of few major Ottawa attractions not associated with the federal government. The Firestone Collection is a first class exhibition of Canadian art, including works by Paul-Émile Borduas, Emily Carr and the Group of Seven. A modest collection of modern art showcases lesser-known Canadian artists. The gallery does a roaring trade in rental art, while temporary exhibits focus on the city's physical and cultural development.

»National Gallery of Canada

Arguably the most beautiful structure in the nation's capital, and certainly a spectacular addition to Ottawa's skyline, the Gallery was designed by Moshe Safdie and completed in 1988. After entering the building, visitors proceed up a long, glass concourse with a vaulted ceiling that leads to the Great Hall. From the hall, visitors can access the gallery's many rooms, each based on an artistic style or period. Pieces include works by masters such as Pissarro, Gustav Klimt and Rembrandt. Admission to the permanent collection is free.

»Bytown Museum

This museum is situated beside the six locks that make up the entrance to the Canal Rideau. It takes 20-30 minutes to tour the small building, which houses artifacts from the 1830s construction of the canal. Through displays and panels, the museum tells the story of the canal's architect and city founding father Lieutenant Colonel John By. It is Ottawa's oldest stone building and dates from 1827.

»Canadian Museum of Nature

A walk through this heritage building, which chronicles Canada's natural history, will take you back in time to when dinosaurs roamed the landscape and glaciers covered 80 per cent of the country's landmass. Exhibits examine the country's biodiversity, the history of Canada's aboriginal peoples and life in the far north. Check website or call for admission fees and special deals.

»Portrait Gallery of Canada

The Portrait Gallery of Canada is a collection of art pieces that are specialized in portraiture. Established in 2001, the gallery was proposed to open around 2004-2005. However, plans to permanently exhibit these artworks in under the way. In the meantime, these portraits are displayed at travelling exhibitions for public viewing. The gallery has a jaw-dropping collection of 20,000 paintings, prints and drawings as well as thousands of caricatures and 4 million photographs.

»Currency Museum

Visitors are encouraged to explore the evolution of money and the monetary system during a visit to this somewhat quirky museum, situated on the ground floor of the Bank of Canada building on Sparks Street. Displays focus not only on Canadian currencies, but also on those of the entire world; a highlight is a giant circular stone once used as legal tender on Yap Island in the South Pacific.
