Museums

  • Make memories with Mom at City Museums! Celebrate Mother’s Day at one of our five special events. On May 11, the City Museums and Historic Sites roll out the red carpet to give you the opportunity to take the moms in your life out for something special while spending time together as a family.  From tea services to gardening to art, City Museums and Historic Sites make sure there’s an event for everyone.

  • The City of Ottawa Museums care for and manage Ottawa’s evidence of human history beyond the written word. Over 200,000 objects in our artefact collections tell the story of the city’s evolution and the people who shaped it – from the earliest settlers to local celebrities.

  • All of the exhibitions at City of Ottawa museums and historic sites feature various objects from our artefact collections that represent special themes and ideas for exploration and discovery, and to spark thinking and conversations about what has changed over time and what still remains. Smaller displays are developed and available for viewing during special events and programs.
