Canada Goose Arctic Gallery
New Permanent Gallery
Opening June 21!
Discover Canada's Arctic through authentic specimens and artefacts, stunning multimedia and indigenous perspectives.
Your senses will awaken as soon as you enter the gallery. The incomparable beauty of this region appears before your eyes in a unique video installation developed in collaboration with the National Film Board of Canada.
Come face to face with some of the Arctic's impressive wildlife: a powerful polar bear, a protective muskox and his calf, a colony of Thick-billed Murres and much more.
Step into the Northern Voices gallery and enjoy Inuinnauyugut: We Are Inuinnait. This community-driven exhibition examines the centennial anniversary of Inuinnait contact with the western world. This special exhibition is curated by the Kitikmeot Heritage Society of Cambridge Bay, Nunavut.
Canada's Arctic comprises 40% of our country's landmass, and has a little more than 100 000 residents. Rich in rugged beauty, home to diverse wildlife and strong with generations of indigenous knowledge, it is a land like no other.
The Arctic is changing at an unprecedented rate. Learn about its geography, ecosystems and sustainability, as well as the impacts of climate change.
Experience it here as of June 21.
