Day Three: Tuesday, September 16 - History of Ottawa/Bytown Museum/National Art Gall...
Breakfast: Breakfast at the hotel.

Morning: PRESENTATION: History of Ottawa. This two-part lecture focuses, first, on the eventual selection of Ottawa as Canada’s capital city after experience with several prior settlements. From early days in the seventeenth century when French explorers came upon Ottawa Indians while exploring new routes for the fur trade to Queen Victoria’s judicious decision to locate the capital in a region that satisfied ethnic, commercial, religious and strategic objectives, Ottawa enjoyed volatile beginnings. A discussion follows of Ottawa’s contemporary make-up driven by both public and private sectors, multicultural richness -- from Inuit to Vietnamese -- and as a dramatic locus for the spark of what many see as the beginning of the Cold War. Coupled with this is a brief overview of the basic principles of universal healthcare in Canada from its early days in the 1950’s to its present status that most Canadians like to call a defining characteristic of their national identity.

Morning: FIELD TRIP: National Art Gallery. Whether you're a novice or expert, historical or contemporary art-lover, the Gallery is constantly putting on engaging events to encourage learning in a stimulating, informal environment. Your guide will give you a fascinating new perspective on the works of art found throughout the collections.

Morning: FIELD TRIP: Bytown Museum. Travel through time and explore the stories that shaped Bytown and early Ottawa. From the arrival of Lieutenant-Colonel John By and the construction of the Rideau Canal to the naming of Ottawa as the nation’s capital, the permanent exhibits will introduce you to the people and the objects that helped build this great city.

Lunch: Lunch on your own.

Afternoon: FREE TIME: Free afternoon to continue exploring the museum or visit the many museums that the city has to offer, or take a cruise on the Rideau Canal.

Dinner: Dinner at a local restaurant.
