Canadian Museum of Nature
Gaze through the portholes of a deep-sea submarine. Experience the tremors of an asteroid's impact. See the hot-spots on your body with an endothermy camera, spy on a hairy tarantula, or watch the light glint off of more than 1,000 rocks and minerals. Such attractions might be the main event at most museums, but at the Canadian Museum of Nature, they're just the tip of the iceberg—and you can learn about icebergs, too. The offerings range from tiny insects to a skeleton of the largest animal in the world, a blue whale, one of only two such skeletons on display in the country.
These treasures and more are showcased in the museum's eight permanent galleries, which welcome visitors throughout the year. A new special exhibition, Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence, explores the magic and science of the phenomenon of natural bioluminescence. The Victoria Memorial Museum Building itself is steeped in history, and one of its newest additions immediately catches the eye: the Queen's Lantern, named by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II herself, a modern glass tower that glows above the entrance to the century-old structure.
