Our exhibits include:
Explore the history and ecosystems of our great country! From 3.5 billion year old fossil algae to dinosaurs to polar bears, countless fascinating creatures have called this nation their home. View (and touch!) the evolutionary legacy of Canada!
We are also proud to showcase the human history of our continent, including pottery, Ice Age stone tools and ancient Inuit artifacts crafted from fossilized ivory!
***WALL OF EXTINCTION***
Life isn't easy… especially when you are on the Endangered Species List! Combining antique specimens and animal parts obtained from Canadian Zoos, we have created a display of the world's most at-risk lifeforms. Learn about the challenges faced by the planet's rarest animals and how people, including yourself, can make a difference.
Animals come in all shapes and sizes. From the tiniest mouse to the towering giraffe, our Living Planet exhibit will reveal to you the inner workings of our furry, feathered, and scaled companions. Our collection is composed of hundreds of animal skulls, skeletons and taxidermy mounts.
We know you love dinosaurs… who doesn't? Our paleontology collection includes specimens from raptors, ceratopsians, anklyosaurs, and dozens of other Dinosauria! We are also displaying a wide variety of ancient marine and mammal life, including woolly mammoths and the very first placental mammal — the common ancestory of everything from whales to people!
***LIFE IN ANTIQUITY***
Explore the history of mankind, from the first stone tools ever flaked by Homo habilis (2.2 million years ago) up to the detonation of the first atomic bomb and the moon landing! Our collection represents many of the world's greatest civilizations including the Ancient Egyptians, Romans, Babylonians, Greek, Mayan, Aztec, and the Vikings!
***UNDER THE SEA***
Roughly 70% of the Earth's surface is covered by water — take the plunge and uncover the mysteries that lay beneath the waves! Our newly articulated Long-Finned Pilot Whale skeleton serves at the centerpiece to our brand-new exhibit composed of the modern and ancient coral, shells, marine mammals, fish and cephalopods that make our waterways their home.
Every stone tells a story. From the oldest rocks (created during the formation of the solar system) to the youngest (actively spewing from the Earth's active volcanoes), our mineral and crystal collection will take you on a 4.6 billion year journey to the supernova explosion that created our Sun and the planets (and moons) in our celestial neighbourhood.
