The graceful curves of the Museum of History over in Gatineau appeals to me, and these shots date from May. Here we're moving around the curatorial wing towards the main entrance.
The main entrance seems to be glaring in disapproval.
Between the curatorial wing and the exhibit building, the promenade has this fountain and waterworks. Parliament Hill and the Ottawa River lurk in the background. This location, with the fountain in operation, is one of my favourite vantage points in both cities to take shots of Parliament Hill and the Chateau.
Down the stairs, this gives a view of the terraces as the water flows down to the lower pool.
It spills over the edges and runs down a ramp, easily viewed from inside the Grand Hall.
And getting behind the water here is another favourite view of Parliament Hill, obscured by the waterfall.
