    »Diefenbunker

    Perhaps Canada's greatest artifact of the Cold War, this 30 square kilometer (100,000 square foot) bunker is located less than an hour west of Ottawa in Carp. It was constructed at the height of nuclear tensions between 1959 and 1961, and named after then Prime Minister John Diefenbaker. Built on springs to absorb explosive shockwaves, the bunker can accommodate more than 500 people for 30 days. Presently a museum, this National Historic Site offers its visitors a peek inside the government rooms and living quarters.

    »Patrick John Mills Contemporary Fine Art Gallery

    Born in 1972, Patrick John Mills is one of the youngest contemporary artists to have a gallery named after him. A turbulent childhood led him to a life of seclusion where he sought refuge in sleepless nights of painting. Having exhibited his works and even poetry in America and Europe, his gallery in Ottawa now houses some of his most stunning works. The sculpture garden is a beauty so have a stroll through it on your way out.

    »Currency Museum

    Visitors are encouraged to explore the evolution of money and the monetary system during a visit to this somewhat quirky museum, situated on the ground floor of the Bank of Canada building on Sparks Street. Displays focus not only on Canadian currencies, but also on those of the entire world; a highlight is a giant circular stone once used as legal tender on Yap Island in the South Pacific.
