Founded in 1880, the National Gallery of Canada has played a key role in Canadian culture for well over a century.

Comprising works from antiquity to the present day, the Gallery has one of the finest collections of Indigenous and Canadian art in the world, as well as masterworks from numerous other artistic traditions. In addition to showcasing works of art, the Gallery preserves, studies and shares works in every conceivable medium, including photography, sculpture, painting, installation and the decorative arts. With a mandate to share the visual arts with Canadians, the Gallery works with artists and arts organizations across the country and around the world to share our collective story through art.

Located in Ottawa, the Gallery makes its home in a grand, light-filled structure of glass and granite designed by world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie.
