AAA Editor Notes
National Gallery of Canada, 380 Sussex Dr., at the corner of Patrick St., is in a dramatically modern building designed by Moshe Safdie and highlighted by expanses of glass, skylights and interior courtyards. Incorporated in the building is the reconstructed and historic Rideau Chapel, which presents some of the museum's collection of sacred art and silver pieces.

The Canadian Galleries are the museum's centerpiece and display works from the early 19th century to the present, including landscape paintings by the Group of Seven. In the upper-level galleries are works by such masters as Paul Cézanne, Jean Chardin, Edgar Degas, Thomas Gainsborough, El Greco, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Rembrandt and Vincent van Gogh.

The Photographic Collection, featuring the works of Canadian photographers, includes more than 160,000 photographic works from the 1960s to the present. Prints, sculpture, videos and films as well as special exhibits complete the museum's extensive displays. For an even more in-depth look at the museum's art there are some narrated options, some with a fee, including Adult Art Tour, Stimulating the Senses and Docent's Choice. Stimulating the Senses requires registration.
