COVID-19 Update: The highest priority of the City of Ottawa Archives is the safety and well-being of our visitors, volunteers, and our staff. Consistent with Ottawa Public Health guidance related to the spread of COVID-19, we are closed until September 2020. As the City begins a phased reopening, more details will be provided as services resume.
Postcards from Ottawa: Traveller Tales invites you to take a brief journey across Ottawa’s history through individuals that have come to this place we call Ottawa. Some stayed to live, most moved on, but all, in their own way, engaged Ottawa and its people.
The exhibition also invites you to learn that the land these individuals came to is the home of the Algonquin, their ancestors and predecessors.
