Learn about Canada's rich history and advancements in farming science and technology with a visit to Canada Agriculture and Food Museum. The museum houses a modern working farm, including exhibits on tractors, bees, potash deposits, the science of food, the history of agriculture, and even manure. Goats, pigs, cows, llamas, and donkeys are among the animals to see. Tour the grounds, inspect the crops, and aid in the harvest with a wagon ride around the property. Watch the cooks do a live cooking demonstration in the kitchen and sample some of the treats. Snacks and drinks are available from vending machines, but if you want a full meal you'll need to bring a picnic lunch.

  • It was my third visit of this place and I enjoyed it as always very much, although I’m not a kid anymore. In several barns there are cows, pigs, horses and my favourite cute sheep and goats. You can pet the animals and it seems they like it.There is a garden with the flower beds. You can walk through and enjoy all the colorful beauty. It is a very peaceful place. I’ll be definitely back, when I’m in Ottawa again.
  • Another great museum in Ottawa! Lots of activities for the whole family. We were able to catch the milking of the cows at 4. A guide answered lots of questions about our milk system - very informative. FYI this museum does not have strollers like the aviation museum. There is also a nice outdoor playground.
