Museums are a wonderful way for travellers to educate themselves on their destination city's history and unique cultural influences. In Ottawa, the Bytown Museum is a perfect attraction for visitors who are hoping to view some interesting artifacts relating to the rich past of the city and the surrounding region.
Housed in the oldest stone building in Ottawa, this facility boasts more than 7,000 items that allow viewers to catch a glimpse of various important events that occurred near Canada's current capital city, including period garments, letters and statues of famous historians who called this area home. On November 6th, acting curator Judith Parker will be giving a presentation to explain the exhibit, which is free to attend with the price of admission.
This fall, the museum will be welcoming a new exhibit created by Cindy Stelmackowich titled Dearly Departed. Beginning on October 18th, this incredible display offers a closer look into the routines and traditions native Ottawans have performed for their lost loved ones throughout history.
Travellers looking for an awe-inspiring museum to visit while in Ottawa should consider a trip to Bytown, which could prove a wonderful addition to one's holiday plans.
