OTTAWA MUSEUM OF NATURE 

Home to one of the world’s largest and finest natural history collections, the Canadian Museum of Nature is not to be missed. Its holdings are showcased in one of the most interesting buildings in the museum world. A century ago, it served as a temporary home for the House of Commons. Today, it seamlessly blends old & new; within its castle-like walls you'll find a great array of modern galleries and spaces.

 

With our CMN Conundrum Adventure, you'll cover four billion years of Earth's history in a mere couple of hours. Our puzzle based challenges will lead you through the ages and put an intriguing twist on the Museum's collection of dinosaurs, marine life, minerals, and birds. Will your team be able to catch a bird bandit? Is your team sensitive enough to recreate a mineral love story? When a ship captain's whale watching expedition goes awry, will you be able to get his boat back on track? 

 

Your group can count on a shared team experience that is fun, challenging, and maybe even a bit inspirational – allowing participants to come away with a deeper appreciation of both nature and their colleagues.

 

If you are planning your group activities as part of a bigger company function, the Canadian Museum of Nature is an excellent venue for corporate meetings and events. Conveniently located minutes from downtown Ottawa, and recognized as a preferred event destination, the Museum is ideal for a wide range of corporate functions, we have also compiled a list of "Team Building Friendly" establishments in the area.
