We are a collective of five heritage museums in the National Capital Region that offer one-of-a-kind meeting and event services.  With rental spaces that date back to 1867, our group of rural museums offers rich alternatives to standard hotel and conference centres.

Where We Are Located

Our museums are located within or just outside of Ottawa’s city limits, in charming rural communities that are steeped in Canadian history.

From Manotick, Carp and Dunrobin, to Almonte and Smiths Falls, our sites are a getaway from the City core, all within an hour’s country drive!
