Canadian Museum of Nature

Recommended
The Canadian Museum of Nature is mainly devoted to the geology of our planet and to the origins of life on earth. It covers the creation of the oceans and continents, particularly North America, and features several sections devoted to dinosaurs, the birds of Canada and Canadian mammals (musk-ox of the Arctic, moose of New Brunswick, pronghorn of Saskatchewan, British Columbia's grizzly bear). The Animalium exhibit crawls with cockroaches, slugs and spiders.
