My pride in being a member of the Bytown Museum is that this wee gem can look at Ottawa’s past so accurately and can look forward with such vigor and enthusiasm. Two things that I brag about all the time are the audio tapes in SIX languages and the Youth Council. Super initiatives both!”
“Buying a membership with the Bytown Museum is the best way I know to cast your vote for cool, sustainable community museums. And as a bonus, the museum is genuinely fun and full of interesting artifacts and stories that will keep you coming back for more!”
