Museum of History – July 25


Today in the afternoon, we went to the Museum of History. Our tour guide was really nice. She spoke very clearly; when we didn’t understand she used body language and onomatopoeias. I have never listened so carefully to a guide in a Chinese museum! We learned a lot! We had a good time there.

Today we went to the history museum. It’s beside Ottawa river. The museum is big and clean. We learned more about Canada’s history. The exhibition here is delicate and very old. Around 3:00 we went back to school. What a fun day!

Today we went to the Museum of History. It was amazing! I learned a lot of information from it. The guided tour was very nice. The guide was so friendly. She taught us a lot of things we didn’t know. I could understand most of these things. 
The guide told us about Canada’s Indigenous people’s history. It was really interesting! I remembered the place where we clapped our hands and walked across it. When we were at the middle of this place, the sound changed.
At last, we went to the “Canada History Hall.” I thought the Canada History Museum was really interesting. I liked learning history from it!
Today I was so excited!

Today, we went to Museum of History. Arriving at the museum, we put bags in the cabinet, and went upstairs. Then we met a guide. She told us many things about the museum and it was very interesting. The most interesting fact that she told was the tile of 1st floor. Some tiles were shining and some weren’t shining so that it could be seen like a sea. Before going to the museum, I thought that there would not have many contents. However, my thought was wrong. There were too many things to see all of them. That’s why I could not see everything in the museum. I think Canadian Museum of History is a very good place to understand Canada.

Today I went to the history museum. It seemed really big. I could see a lot of things about Canada like Canadian’s history, clothes. The most interesting thing  was that ceiling. It meant four seasons. I would like to visit that museum again.

Today we went to the History museum. The walls of the museum are interesting. They’re made of rocks in which there are some bones! In the museum, we learned how people told a story and how people were long, long ago. We learned about the war in Canada, and how the British and French went to North America and made a country called “Canada.” I also saw some old guns and some pictures of letters from the war. 
I learned a lot in the museum. I had a lot of fun.

So, the Museum of History, even though you are not very keen on history, you will find it interesting because you’ll discover more about Canada, its past and how people used to live in ancient times. 
I recommend it for sure!After having had a look inside, you can also take some marvelous pictures outside the building, as the structure of it is really wonderful, too! 
We spent such a great time there!

On July 15th I went to Quebec with our Summer English Explorer Program. First, I took bus to museum. Afterwards, I saw many Canadian things. Finally, I came home. As you can see, I had a very good time with my friends.

Today I went to a museum with my friends in Summer Explorer Camp. First of all, we went by bus to get to the museum. Then we went shopping in the museum. Finally we went by bus back to the school. We all had a very good time because it is interesting and beautiful. It was a wonderful experience.

Today I went to a museum which was about Canada’s history. This was my most favourite activity. We first went into the Great Hall. The building is like a boat and the ground is like water. It showed us how the ancient Canadians lived. Then we went to the Indigenous people’s hall. We saw many things that have ancient history. We went to the third floor and saw the history in Canada after 1914. Starting from World War I, through World War II, the Cold War, to the present day. I enjoyed World War I and World War II’s exhibit the most. Such a good history museum!

At the Museum of History, we learned about Canada. I was surprised to find out more about Canada’s independence and how the immigrants and women, at that time, didn’t have any rights. The museum was a great experience because I learned about another culture.

Today, Friday the 5th, 2019 I went to the Museum of History in Quebec. Outside was quite hot so entering inside was a good idea. The first impression of this building was quite good. I remembered that place because we went there while doing the city bus tour. It really looked interesting.

We were divided in two groups once we left the backpacks in lockers (don’t really know why). The guide was called Teresa (just like me 😃) and we started on the ground floor. As we all walked through the expositions, the guide explained to us the past of this beautiful country. If you really like history, you should visit this because it’s an amazing place. Totems looked imposing, that faces of both animals and humans, judging you with that wooden look just in front of old, very well-conserved houses. A sculpture I liked specially symbolized the work in-group. They have their battles but no one betrays his or her partners. Lately, that visit was held on upstairs, in the third stage.


We just have time for the C part, contemporary history. We enjoyed interesting facts about the wars and human rights. Sincerely, I found more interesting the first part of the visit. But the visit was worth a lot.

On Friday, the 5th of July, we visited the Museum of History in Gatineau, Quebec. We took a bus which drove over a bridge leading to the other side of the Ottawa River that is between Ottawa and Gatineau, Quebec.

The Museum was designed by a Métis. Around the building there are columns in the shape of paddles. The paddles are pointed up to the sky which is the symbol of peace. Further, the ceiling is shaped like a canoe.

We had a tour guide who showed us many places in the museum. We learned much about Canadian history. In the first section, we saw different totem poles and art of Indigenous People. In the second section, we learned more about Canada’s modern history e.g. that Quebec nearly became independent from Canada. There were two referendums; in the second one the vote was 51% to stay in Canada and 49% to leave Canada.

At the end, we got some free time, which some of us used to go to a part of the museum about Neanderthals. There we were shown several tools that
Neanderthals built themselves.

When the time was over, we took the bus again and drove back to OCENET. All in all, it was a very interesting visit and it was very exciting.

It is also the most popular and most visited of all Canadian museums. It is located on the North bank of the Ottawa River, directly opposite the buildings of Parliament Hill, which  was erected in Ottawa, its main objective is to collect, study, preserve and presente the material of Canadá and the Cultural diversity of its population.
