  National Art Gallery,Ottawa,Ontario,Canada.

I have to admit that I have only been to the National Gallery twice when special exhibits have been here....

I love the design of the structure and its feeling of space and light that it's design creates.

The present location of the Gallery was opened in 1988...previous to that it was located in a building that now houses the Embassy of Great Britain on Elgin Street.

Its collections include Canadian & Aboriginal Art,European and American Art ,Contemporary Art,Inuit Art,Modern Art,Photographs Collection,and more...

Works by Van Gogh, Chardin,Paul Kane,Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven,and many others can be seen here.

Tours of the National Gallery’s Permanent Collection are offered at 2 pm from Wednesday to Sunday from 1 October to 30 April, and daily at 2 pm from May through September.You DO NOT need a guide audio guides are available that allows visitors to access over 200 commentaries about the Canadian galleries and individual works in the collection.
