The Canadian Museum of Nature is affectionately known as “the castle” because of its Gothic architectural style with turrets and crenellations. A beautiful glass “lantern” over its main entrance is the Museum’s most visible new exterior feature.

Visitors will be wowed by the amazing new Water Gallery and Earth Gallery. The Water Gallery features a 19-metre (65-foot) skeleton of a blue whale, the largest animal on the planet! In the Earth Gallery, visitors will see over 800 dazzling minerals from the Museum’s world-class collection. Most of these specimens have never before been exhibited. And let’s not forget their other, creepier specimens… ones that actually move! In Animalium, an eye-popping assortment of insects, arachnids and slugs will be sure to get a reaction!

In addition, three special temporary exhibitions, AQUA, Frogs – A Chorus of Colours and the Wildlife Photography of the Year exhibition will keep visitors busy.

Free admit every Thursdays from 5.00pm to 8.00pm and July 1 (Canada Day).
