(re)discover the Capital’s unique and wonderful Heritage offerings and experiences

Rediscover your own 'space' with Osgoode Township Museum

As many will be tourists in our own town or taking ‘staycations’ this year, we encourage you to (re)discover the Capital’s unique and wonderful Heritage offerings and experiences!

Take a leisurely stroll through the incredible Beechwood Cemetery grounds, including the Macoun Marsh.  View their virtual tour for inspiration.

Visit or try to escape from the cool digs of the Diefenbunker, Canada’s Cold War Museum, and largest escape room.  Or, book a Haunted Walk ‘Bubble Ghost Tour’ including the Original Haunted Walk of Ottawa or Haunted Ottawa Jail Tour.

Shop/support local businesses in our heritage ByWard Market and along our historic main streets.  Discover local film sites in some of our heritage neighbourhoods.

Check out Ottawa Tourism’s #MyOttawa passport for accommodation, retail, adventure and services savings.  And Check In, with the It’s On Us promo:  a minimum 2 night hotel stay rewards you with a $100 Visa certificate.

There are some special at home activities too, such as Osgoode Township Museum’s Paint & Pixels free virtual paint nite

Be sure to confirm updated opening hours, booking and COVID-19 safety requirements.  And enjoy your close to and at home Heritage experiences!
