Daily Sketch: The Canadian Museum of History

Sketch #2: Grand Hall
Thursday evening I attended a free lecture given by Gunnar Anderson, (Senior Curator at The Swedish History Museum where admission is always free) on the Viking Exhibition at the Canadian Museum of History which ends April 17, 2016.

I also decided to go to the museum early and sketch for the three free hours before the lecture started at 7 pm .

Sketch #3: Detail

Notes On Free Admission: Every Thursday from 4 to 8 p.m. admission to the Museum of History is free. The Canadian Museum of History also offers free admission to all Aboriginal peoples, including Inuit, M├ętis and First Nations, upon presentation of  their Status Card.

And the Canadian Museum of History loves artists and welcomes artists who want to visit on the free nights to sketch! If you have a Thursday evening free, grab your sketch kit and head over to Gatineau, Quebec.
