September 15/18 (Part 2) – in Ottawa – Canadian History Museum

While we did not visit this Museum on this trip, we have been here before, in 2005, when it was called the Museum of Civilization. It is actually in Hull, across the Ottawa River from the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa.

If you are near the river or the Alexandra Bridge, you can not miss this striking structure, opened in 1989 at a cost of $340,000,000 (budget was $80,000,000). The structure was designed by Canadian architect Douglas Cardinal, who uses flowing lines to turn his vision into reality.
