The Canadian Museum of Civilization
We spent the afternoon in Gatineau, Quebec, visiting the Canadian Museum of Civilization. We had two hours to see a museum that could keep you entertained for a week. Highlights were their exhibits on First Nation People and Cultures, and a special exhibit devoted to the Horse. It was a day for horses, and the exhibit only added to our admiration for this fantastic animal friend.
We caught the Tour Bus back to Ottawa and ended the day with a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral and a leisurely walk back downtown to catch our shuttle. Two days in Ottawa is just enough to give you a taste for more, and to think that we almost skipped coming here. Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City and Ottawa are so different from each other that it’s hard to compare them, but of the four Ottawa was hard to beat.
