Nothing more....

Pleasant staff in the museum, but far from being so interesting, they will give you some young Canadian history. Half of the interactive attractions do not work. On the site There is a cinema but the films were on flora and fauna. The shop is not bad, there is also something to eat but I did not go there. The architecture of the museum is really interesting to see. To get there, the water taxi that links the museum to Ottawa's Rideau Canal (downtown) is an excellent form of transportation.
