Canadian Museum of History

Hi everyone!

How you guys doing so far? Isn’t it a bit nerve racking though knowing it’s the end of June already?! I mean where did the half of the year go?? Seriously.

Anyway, on this blog post I will be sharing with you our visit to the Canadian Museum of History in May. It was actually the weekend of Tulip Festival in Ottawa that time which I will feature on my next posts.

Overview

The museum focuses on Canadian History and it’s people. It was formerly called Canadian Museum of Civilization then renamed as Canadian Museum of History in October 2012. It is also considered as one of the oldest public institution in the country which is known for it’s spectacular post modern architecture that represents Canadian landscapes.

Children’s Museum

To be honest with you this part of the Museum —  Children’s Museum was the main reason why we went there. For months Ethan was begging us to go to “Children’s Museum in Tampa, Florida.” that’s exactly his statement before. Hence, as a wonder mom I did some research to find a museum similar to it in Ontario. Fortunately, we didn’t have to fly to US.

This museum gives children the opportunity to experience different cultures all over the world. The miniature pyramid, the Pakistani bus, that bike from Thailand, homes in Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia etc were just few which make the place such an amazing one for children of all ages to travel through play. I highly recommend it you guys!
