Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography (CMCP)

Travel Canada and visit CMCP

Wedged in between the Chateau Laurier and the canal, in a reconstructed railway tunnel at 1 Rideau Canal, the CMCP is the photo museum. Originally part of the National Film Board, this is where the still photography division houses its photographic research departments and the country’s vast photographic archives.

Unfortunately, gallery space is limited, so you may want to check what’s on before visiting. Exhibits are not always of Canadian’s work and may not be of very much interest to the casual viewer unacquainted with esoteric approaches to the photography medium. Shows change quarterly.

The gallery is open from May to October from 11 am to 5 pm daily (until 8 pm on Thursday), except Wednesday, when year it keeps the same hours Wednesday to Sunday but is closed Monday and Tuesday Admission is free. Enjoy the tourist spot beauty.
