A Demonstration Farm
in the Heart of Canada’s Capital

The Canada Agriculture Museum is living proof of the "Green Capital"; in fact Ottawa is the only world Capital that has a working farm at its heart. Canada's unique agricultural heritage is featured at the Canada Agriculture Museum where you can explore the sights and sounds of typical farm life.

Outdoor exhibition

  • See renewable energy in action at the Canada Agriculture Museum’s Energy Park: Nature at Work. Farms are not only consumers of energy, increasingly they are also producers. Take a stroll through this outdoor park and try your hand at “harvesting” energy using our solar interactive. See if you can beat the wind and pump water faster than a windmill!

Exhibitions located in the loft of the Dairy Barn

  • Tractors looks at the "farmer's" office in the field". This exhibition shows how the tractor has evolved from an unfamiliar oddity on Canadian farms to a commmonplace tool in less than 100 years.

  • Taking Care of Beesness
    There’s a new buzz at the Canada Agriculture Museum. Discover the essential role bees play in the pollination of many Canadian food crops such as blueberries and apples, as well as to the production of honey and many other by-products, while you explore the role and the tools of the beekeeper. Check out the Museum’s live hive arriving in May and try to find the queen among all the workers and drones.
