Museum of Civilization Report Abuse
A wonderful museum, and definitely not to be missed while in Ottawa. The museum also houses an IMAX cinema, and is a great place to go with children.

Bytown Museum Report Abuse

Comments:
3rd best museum in Ottawa?This top 20 list is more then a little skewed, or speaks to the inaction of real museum visitors. How this institution can even be ranked above the Canadian War Museum, CMC, Canadian Air and Space Museum, Science and Tech, the Ottawa Art Gallery come on, I love the comment the little museum that could, little in what way? Centeral location an operating budget that matches that of most of our nationals based on square footage, staffing and collection size. Not so little museum or is it a gallery?

The little museum that could! Located in the heart of downtown Ottawa, the Bytown Museum explores the stories of an evolving city and its residents from its early days as Bytown to present day Ottawa. The Bytown Museum is Ottawa’s new neighbourhood museum.
