Formerly known as the Canadian Museum of Civilization, the Musee canadien de l’histoire is a national museum of human history which opened in 1856. The museum showcases galleries that show Canada’s 20,000 years of human history. It draws in around 1.3 million visitors every year.

The human and cultural history museum is located in the Hull area of Gatineau, Quebec and was established to help collect, study and preserve objects that provide understanding to the human history of Canada. The museum has three permanent exhibition galleries. The Grand Hall is in the first level and comes with a wall of windows, a wall of the largest color photograph in the world. The First People’s Hall tells of the history and accomplishments of the Aboriginal people from the country starting from when they first inhabited North America. The Canada Hall is set to become a signature permanent hall which will expand the history of Canada further until the present day.
