Enjoy the Capital Experience

What to know?

Few cities in North America can boast the quality of life enjoyed by Ottawa residents. As Canada’s Capital, visitors are always eager to indulge in the city’s rich offering of national museums and galleries.

Start by exploring Canada’s history and achievements at the War Museum, the Canadian Museum of Nature, the Museum of Civilization (in Gatineau), and The National Gallery. Stay entertained with performances at the National Arts Centre, big-ticket concerts, or NHL hockey. And of course, don’t forget to tour Parliament Hill!
