Canadian Mu­seum of Na­ture

Timeless Travels Magazine - - CANADA -

Ev­ery as­pect of the nat­u­ral world is ex­plored in this ex­cel­lent mu­seum’s gal­leries: fos­sils, un­der­wa­ter life, mam­mals, ge­ol­ogy and birds (and there’s an art gallery too). As you pass from gallery to gallery, you’ll come across stat­ues of woolly mam­moths, di­nosaur skele­tons, and a mas­sive blue whale skele­ton hang­ing from the ceil­ing. There are crea­tures of the less dead va­ri­ety too; so, if live bee­tles, cock­roaches and taran­tu­las don’t bother you, head over to the ‘Na­ture Live’ sec­tion to meet them. Some­times (and rather un­ex­pect­edly), the mu­seum holds mu­sic events in the gal­leries, just in case you feel like danc­ing the night away in the vicin­ity of di­nosaurs and ge­o­log­i­cal spec­i­mens. In June 2017, an Arc­tic Gallery will open in the mu­seum as its lat­est per­ma­nent gallery.
