The Canadian Museum of History is Canada's national museum of human history and it is one of Canada’s oldest public institutions. The primary purpose is to collect, study, preserve, and present material objects that illuminate the human history of Canada and the cultural diversity of its people.

The Canadian Museum of History welcomes over 1.2 million visitors each year. In addition to the regular exhibitions, each year the Museum presents a number of outstanding exhibitions focusing on Canadian and world history and civilizations. The Museum is also home to the Canadian Children’s Museum, a 500-seat theatre and the CINÉ+, a 295-seat movie theatre equipped with a giant 3D screen and a giant dome.

The Canadian Museum of History has roughly 25,000 square metres of display space, spread over four floors in its Museum Building.

The history of the Canadian Museum of History began in 1856 with the establishment of a museum by the Geological Survey of Canada. In 2013, The Canadian Museum of Civilization is renamed the Canadian Museum of History.

The museum was designed by Douglas Cardinal, a famous Aboriginal architect.
