Canada’s History

By Linda Tancs

The Canadian Museum of History is the most-visited museum in the nation. It’s also one of the country’s oldest institutions, with roots dating back to 1856. Boasting 25,000 square meters of display space and representing nearly as many years of human history, its purpose is to promote Canadian heritage and research in the fields of history, archaeology, ethnology and cultural studies. In addition to ongoing exhibitions like Grand Hall and First Peoples Hall, the facility provides special exhibitions on not only Canadian history but also on world history and civilizations. The museum is located in Gatineau, Quebec, on the banks of the Ottawa River directly opposite Parliament Hill.
