Day 129 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: The National War Museum in Ottawa

This image of the exterior was taken from my archive, as I wanted a snow-free picture of the building. The remaining photos were taken today at the National War Museum in Ottawa.

The new Canadian War Museum (CWM) is a major national museum of military history, covering Canada’s military past from earliest times to the present day. Located on the shores of the Ottawa River, a few minutes west of Parliament Hill, the newly built Museum is now sure to become one of the National Capital’s landmarks and one of Canada’s most significant cultural museums.
Through its extraordinary permanent and special exhibitions, the Museum shows how military events have shaped the development of the country, both at home and on the world stage. A stunning architectural design, innovative exhibitions, diverse public programs and unparalleled displays of collections are making it one of the world’s most respected venues for the study and understanding of human conflict.
