The national museums all have free admission on Canada Day, but if we had to pick just one, it's the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. You'll see rare appearances by vintage aircraft, meet members of the SkyHawks (Canada's military parachute team) and get an autograph from a Snowbirds pilot. Plus, there's a meet and greet session with Chris Hadfield! Be sure to arrive as early as you can to nab a photo op with the living legend. Its indoor location, wide aisles, and great facilities make this an ideal destination for younger kids.
