Canadian Museum of Civilisation

hello everyone,
so yesterday i went to another museum. museum is kinda fun to visit sometime. and this one, Canadian Museum of Civilization i actually enjoyed the most. The War Museum was fine. but this museum actually fascinated me the most. it is not located in Ottawa, Ontario but in Gatineau, Quebec. which is on the other side separated by the Rideau River. fortunate for me there are bus to go there although it is on a different province. so for once in my life i can say i went to Gatineau alone without knowing any french at all (yeah right, like i spoke a word there). anyway, there are a buttload of information to learn there. From the First Nation, kids, Post Office to how Canada came to be what it is today. so by far, i had the most fun here. here is some pictures i took there.

this is the first floor of the museum. this is basically the native stuff. always fun to watch the First Nation art crafts. they spay attention on precisions and details. the symbolism., i dont care much, you have to read it on your own time.
