Considering this is a national museum in Canada's Capital City, this venue should be better than it is. It was recently renovated. The parking lot is atrocious. Full of potholes and mud. Nothing special, but, okay for a visit.More

Overall it was good but a little surprising. It seemed like the theme of the museum was somehow lost. The displays are well done but you walked away with the impression it was a museum of history. What it lacked was science and tech displays....More

When I was younger I use to visit this museum. They rebuilt a brand new museum and it s beautiful. There are many activities for children and lots to see. You should visit because it is worth it.

Hands-on exhibits done in unique and interesting ways. Our ages were 5 years to 79 years and we all learned so much that we didn't want to leave. Definitely a place to revisit as it has so much well presented information.
