The Bytown Museum is a not-for-profit, registered charity. In response to COVID-19, we have been commended on our Virtual Tour and Audio Guide accessibility, and our engagement with positive messaging, however due to restrictions on large gatherings, we are taking a hit in funding from admission fees, school tours, and more. Below is the link to the Bytown Museum’s Canada Helps page. There you can donate monthly, one time, or leave us a note if you’re interested in becoming a member. Your generosity means the world to us.
