Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, the Bytown Museum explores the stories of an evolving city and its residents from its first inhabitants and the early days as Bytown to present day Ottawa.
Housed in Ottawa's oldest stone building, the Museum is situated next to the Rideau Canal locks between Parliament Hill and the Château Laurier hotel—one of the most picturesque sites in the city.
Join the Museum for family events, new exhibits, daily programs and guided tours. A six-language audio-tour, available in English, French, German, Spanish, Mandarin and Japanese, is included with the admission ticket.
