Museum Guide

The Museum’s galleries and public spaces present a wide array of exhibitions on Canadian and world history. To optimize your visit, the Museum provides a full-colour Museum Guide. Featuring the main galleries and exhibition spaces, this brochure draws attention to points of interest against which to chart your progress through the Museum.

Museum Guide (PDF)

The galleries on Level 1 of the Museum present exhibitions relating principally to Canada’s First Peoples: their histories, cultural identities, artistic expressions and traditional and contemporary ways of life.

On Level 2 there are three galleries devoted to changing exhibitions. Some of these exhibitions are designed by the Canadian Museum of History; others are produced by Canadian as well as international institutions.

The Canadian History Hall is located on levels 3 and 4. This exhibition traces Canada’s history from the dawn of human habitation to the present day.
