Wednesday to Sunday, December 2 to December 20
10 am to 5 pm
We’ve decked the halls at Billings Estate. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the season and enjoy a leisurely self-guided tour of the museum. Learn more about the Billings family, see life as an early settler family through their eyes, and take in the festive decorations that signal the arrival of the holidays at Ottawa’s oldest wood-framed house.
Regular admission fees apply. Visitors are encouraged to pre-book online or by calling the museum by 4 pm the day prior. Visitors without a booking will be admitted only if capacity allows.
