Ottawa Museums & Archives Collections

We have been informed that Ottawa has put their museums and archives collections online at

You can search the entire collection, browse the items, or click on one of the community museum links to browse only that museum's collection.

So I took a look at the full collection, and visited each of the museum ‘virtually’ and I liked my visit. I got to see each item at my leisure and I subscribed to the e-newsletter so that I will get the upgrades to the museums, and the archives.

You can search their collections of the community museums in Ottawa – the Bytown Museum, the Diefenbunker, the Goulbourne Museum, the Osgoode Township Museum, and the Museoparc Vanier Museapark, and the City of Ottawa museums at Billings Estate National Museum Site, the Cumberland Heritage Village Museum, and the Gloucester Collection, and of course, the City of Ottawa Archives.
