Located on a national heritage site, the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum is the world’s only working farm in the heart of a capital city. The museum offers visitors a unique opportunity to see diverse breeds of farm animals — important to past and present Canadian agriculture — and to learn about the food they eat. Museum guides offer daily interpretation activities, offering visitors the chance to ask questions along the way. Located just ten minutes from downtown Ottawa, the museum is easily accessible.
