At the core of the Museum lie its collections of objects of historical or cultural significance, which help define the national heritage. These collections, together with research undertaken by the Museum's curators, are a vital asset for learning more about Canada. With all its collections consolidated at the Parc Laurier site in Gatineau, the Canadian Museum of Civilization now houses 3.75 million artifacts. These range from a grain of rice engraved with Canada's map and national emblem to a 7,000 kg plaster mould of the Spirit of Haida Gwaii sculpture.
Mondays to Sundays 9 to 5pm, Thursday until 8pm, closed Mondays in winter months.

The story of the National Gallery of Canada began in the late 19th-century with a simple dream: that Canadians should have a national gallery.
