National Gallery of Canada

Highly recommended
Capped by prismatic glass "turrets," the museum rises on the banks of the Ottawa River across from the Gothic parliament buildings. Its bold beauty, light and airy exhibit spaces and tranquil interior courtyards provide a unique setting for the remarkable national collections. The permanent collections include Canadian and international art, including Asian. Photographs and other contemporary art collections shed light on the 21C.
