Breathtaking setting. Majestic architecture. Fascinating exhibitions. Welcome to Canada's national museum of history, exploring this country's rich cultural heritage, including the outstanding achievements of First Peoples. As of July 1, visit the Canadian History Hall, our new signature exhibition, where evidence of the past tells a tale as vast and varied as the land itself. Explore Canada's history through the diverse experiences and perspectives of the real people who lived it. Discover our collective story of conflict, struggle and loss, as well as success, achievement and hope. Also, do not miss our many special exhibitions, the Children's Museum and CINÉ+.
