National Gallery Spider

If you are looking for something to do in Ottawa this weekend and don’t want to ante up a lot of unnecessary coin, we have you covered. There are plenty of free things to do in the national’s capital and here are some of our top recommendations.

Take Your Picture Under A Gigantic Spider

National Gallery of Canada – 380 Sussex Dr., Ottawa ON

Louise Bourgeois “Maman” is a spectacular spider sculpture that stands just over 10 metres all and sits outside the National Gallery of Canada. It’s one of the most popular photo opps around and the best part is that it is free.

See Money Without Spending Money

Currency Museum – 245 Sparks St., Ottawa ON

The Currency Museum allows you to see old money and learn more about what you use to pay for everything every day. Just like all of our suggestions, this one is awesome too because there is no admission fee so you can pop in anytime you are feeling bored.

Swim, Swim, Swim!

Gatineau Park – 33 Scott Road, Old Chelsea QC

Gatineau Park features six public beaches and these are a great option to take a dip. You can also try cycling, hiking and boating in the park. It’s a great way to stay active, enjoy the best of the city, and not spend a single dime. Really, could there be a better Weekendtrip?
