The National Gallery of Canada, located in the capital city of Ottawa, Ontario, is Canada's national art museum. The museum's building takes up 46,621 square metres, with 12,400 square metres of space used for exhibiting art. It is one of the largest art museums in North America by exhibition space. The institution was established in 1880 at the Second Supreme Court of Canada building, and moved to the Victoria Memorial Museum building in 1911. In 1913, the Government of Canada passed the National Gallery Act, formally outlining the institution's mandate as a national art museum. The museum was moved to the Lorne building in 1960.
The National Gallery of Canada, a collection of modern art and numerous collections.
The National Gallery of Canada is located in the heart of Ottawa, and it takes about 10 minutes to walk from the Byward Market. The museum has a collection of the most valuable works of art in Canada and Europe and has a long history. The number of Canadian art exhibited in the museum is the highest in the world, while the number of European and American art is the highest in Canada.
If you come close to see the huge bronze spider sculpture "Maman" at the door, the instructions will come. But I feel like I have seen it in many places and I can't think of it.
I think that the design of the glass crystal of the museum itself is already a tribute to the design! The museum has three floors. The third floor is the exhibition room of Asian art, modern art, European art, the second floor is Canadian art and Eskimo art, and the first floor has a very fine bookstore (like every art gallery or The museum will have some related souvenir shops nearby.)
The museum needs to buy tickets for the visit, 12 Canadian dollars for adults, 10 Canadian dollars for seniors and students, 6 Canadian dollars for teenagers, free for children under 11 years old and members, free to buy tickets for cash.
Many people mistakenly think that Toronto is the capital of Canada. Actually, its capital is the city where I am now, Ottawa.
Just after a heavy snowfall in early April, Ottawa seems to be baptized, and the sky is particularly clear and transparent. If you are on a tight day, choose a few classic places:
- Capitol Hill, made up of three Gothic buildings, is the seat of the Canadian federal government and is a symbol of Ottawa and even Canada.
- Peace Pagoda, known as the world's finest Gothic building, is also the tallest building in the Capitol.
- The Changming Fire Station was built to commemorate the founding of Canada for a hundred years and has been burning since 1967. The three places above
are all in the same place and it is very convenient to visit.
Ridau Canal: The 202-kilometer canal smashes the history of the city, and every Ottawa is proud of the important historical and historical status of the Rideau Canal.
National Art Museum: Canada's cultural treasures and collections of art and culture, the works of famous Renaissance artists and world-class artists have been exhibited and treasured here.
National History Museum: It is a good place to learn about Canada's 20,000 years of human history, human history, and people's cultural diversity.
