The Osgoode Township Museum is located off Bank St. in rural Ottawa south. The site is home to a 10,000 square ft. heritage garden, an Orchard, an Agriculture Barn with an impressive exhibition of early farming equipment and a mid-century school house which houses the collection and permanent exhibits. We are a small but mighty and light-hearted staff of 4.
Like many other heritage institutions, our museum underwent unprecedented changes in 2020. We adapted early on to a new reality and thrived, creating new ways to engage with our community through social media, virtual programs, virtual content for classrooms/homeschoolers and virtual events. We even rebranded! Take-home kits have been huge in helping us still meet our fundraising goals, while bringing experiences to our community safely at home. We also somehow managed to build a new permanent exhibit in 2020 that we can’t wait to share with our community!
