This is a must see when visiting the Ottawa area. I never get tired of this place. It's great for adults and great for kids. The most mind blowing sight is when you first enter the Museum and pay for your tickets. Standing at the top of the escalator (there are elevators available), you will see totem poles, lots and lots of totem poles. The first floor is dedication to the First Peoples and they have done a wonderful job of bringing this culture through time. Visually spellbinding! There is also a Children's Museum on the upper level. When the children first enter the children's museum, they receive a 'passport'. As they 'visit' each 'country/culture', they get a stamp on their 'passport'. Here they can sit on a 'camel', sit in an archeologists tent, ride a bus in India, so much to see and do. Great gift shop and refreshment area as well! Take your time, spend the day. (Might be advised to take bottled water with you as the juice and water is very expensive in the food court.)
