For Teachers

Open House

In October, visit Canada's vast natural-history collections and meet some of our researchers and curators.

In January, enjoy some wine and cheese, and check out our special exhibition Bugs: Outside the Box.


Our library is open to the public. We have thousands of resources about the natural sciences, including books, periodicals, our own publications and other resources. The library is at our research and collections facility, in Gatineau, Quebec.


Dozens of scientific terms related to natural history are explained in our thematic glossaries.

Teacher's Kits

Our kits are great supplements for your teaching. They are filled with specimens, props, lessons plans and activities.
