52. Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa.

During my last trip to Ottawa we had a couple of hours to spare and I decided to take a look at Canadian Museum of Nature. I love museums in Canada, what can I say…

An impressive gothic building a couple of blocks away from Ottawa downtown is interesting to see by itself,  and it has so many interesting stuff inside! The museum has a rich collection on display –  dinosaur skeletons, rocks, minerals, animals, insects, interactive boards for kids. It provides so much information in easy and clear way!

Hey, parents of Canada! You must take your children to this museum if you want them to become intelligent and successful people! If I had had such museums when I was a kid, I would have become a scientist.
