Located across the river from Ottawa, on the Québec side, this museum of Canadian culture and History is worth crossing the bridge for. First, because it offers an amazing view of Parliament hill and second, for its beautifully designed Grand Hall with 49 feet high windows. Most importantly, the museum’s permanent exhibits explore 20 000 years of human history. There are also special exhibits about other cultures and civilizations not to be missed.

A beautiful, large museum located in LeBreton Flats which covers the country's military history. There are detailed exhibits and some artworks along the way, which is called "War Art", brought from the National Gallery.
