Follow Canadian Museum of History

Canada's most-visited museum presents the events, people and objects that have shaped the nation. This architectural gem is located in Gatineau, Quebec, directly across the Ottawa River from Parliament Hill.

Marvel at the world's largest indoor collection of totem poles in the Grand Hall (which also offers a spectacular view of Parliament Hill) and learn about the traditions and achievements of Canada's Indigenous nations in the First Peoples Hall. In the Canadian History Hall - the largest and most comprehensive exhibition about Canadian history ever created - you can explore the diverse experiences and perspectives of real people.

Take the kids on an interactive adventure at the on-site Canadian Children's Museum, and thrill to spectacular 2D and 3D movies on the giant screens at CINÉ+. The Canadian Museum of History also hosts temporary exhibitions that illuminate fascinating stories from Canada and around the world.
