Housed in Ottawa’s oldest stone structure, the BYTOWN MUSEUM explores the city’s history from the early years of Rideau Canal construction, through the rough and tumble days of Bytown, to its emergence as Canada’s capital and beyond. Enjoy unique artifacts and exhibits year-round. To assist with a pleasurable visit, and included with admission, is a six-language audio guide available in English, French, German, Spanish, Mandarin and Japanese. Combine your visit with a lovely stroll along the locks and behind the Parliament Buildings, an oasis along the Ottawa River, all within steps of the Museum.
