Long Description:
Just beyond the Plaza is an Upper Terrace, giving access to the museum's main entrance and to the Grand Stairway leading to a lower plaza. The terrace is where dignitaries visiting CMC are formally greeted. It too offers a fine view of Parliament Hill. A small staircase leads up to one of the lower roofs of the building, where a Japanese Zen Garden has been laid out; the space is one of peaceful contemplation. Yet another staircase up from the Zen Garden leads to the roof of the restaurant, where a broad lookout provides panoramic views of the architecture, Parc Laurier, and the cityscape on the south bank of the river.
