Canadian Museum of Nature

Where: Ottawa, Ontario

I went to the Canadian Museum of Nature with my eyes on the prize of the Canada Goose Arctic Gallery and I was not disappointed. This absolutely stunning permanent exhibition begins with huge shards of ice, on to which are projected images of Arctic fauna. You can touch and move around the ice shards and it was one of the most spectacular openings to an exhibit I have ever seen. The rest of the exhibition only builds from there and includes information about the flora, fauna and human inhabitants of the Arctic, as well as discussing climate change (from pre-history to the present day) and sustainability, amongst other topics. An impressively thorough and wonderful space about all-things-Arctic – I’d go again in a heartbeat.

Don’t miss: The giant inflatable jellyfish. Honestly
