    I love rocks (I have a degree in them) & I loved the geology section. The insect/bugs section is great as are the other exhibits. Not that busy compared to other museums so plenty of time to explore

    The special exhibits are worth the extra entrance fee. The dinosaur section is the most interesting!

    For a unique experience, try Nature Nocturne, a once-monthly event where the museum turns into a nightclub.

    Lots of great hands on exhibits for the kids and free general admission on Thursday evenings. Just saw the special exhibit on bio-luminescence which was very educational.

    I personally consider this the most interesting museum in Ottawa. It's compact enough but located in an amazing historic building downtown. Great little giftshop too!

    Sparkling after a massive, seemingly endless renovation, this vast museum pokes its Gothic head up just beyond the skyline, south of downtown.

    Good museum. Each floor (4) is broken into two sections and range from early time (dinosaurs) to rocks/minerals to water. Nicely done.

    Live animal display in the basement! See the cool creepy critters in Animalium. Get nose to nose with a Banana slug or a walking stick insect.

    Today at the grand opening is crazy. Make sure you grab a map and plan a whole day or multiple days to plan your tour. Better yet get a map from their web
