Who are we?
The Ottawa Museum Network was founded in 2007 through the City of Ottawa Museum Sustainability Plan. We work to promote and advance the interests of our eleven member museums. We are committed to raising awareness of the 11 community museums in Ottawa and engaging residents and tourists in local heritage by telling the greater Ottawa story.
