Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fire a Brown Bess Musket? This summer Goulbourn Museum is partnering with the
100th (Prince Regent’s County of Dublin) Regiment to offer Ottawa’s only Hands on History* program. Cost to fire three rounds is $22 (taxes included). Prepayment is required.

Don’t want to get “hands on?” Come out and catch the sights and sounds of the 100th Regiment soldiers in action. This modern regiment is dressed, equipped, and performs drills that accurately reflect the original unit as it would have appeared in garrison during the summer of 1815. Plus, it’s free to watch!

*Hands on History is restricted to ages 16+. Participants must register with the Museum, submit a waiver and successfully complete the training provided by the 100th Regiment. Hands on History is weather permitting. In the event of rain, participants may reschedule or choose to be refunded.
