What people are saying about Ottawa

Upon entering the actual exhibit, not knowing where to start, a lovely gentleman explained how to experience the entire exhibit in a logical manner. The exhibit was broken down into four sections in chronological order. Amazing to realize Canada had been involved in so much warfare. The entire experience was educational and somewhat simple to absorb. I realized how little I knew of our country's war history. I liked the simplicity and open layout depicting so many scenes of history. We unfortunately only had two hours to spend here, but I felt I experienced much. I would definitely return when visiting Ottawa again. I would begin with World War 2 as I felt this was the era in which Canada sacrificed the most. A definite place to visit. So glad this museum exists. P.S. The tanks in the lower level were a must see!

Excellent, organized tour of the Ottawa River. Our friendly guide, Katherine, was very knowledgeable and combined humorous stories with factual information. The tour stopped briefly on the way back in Gatineau to pick up other passengers. The two unisex washrooms on the boat were very clean and distancing measures regarding seating were in place. The snack and beverage bar had an adequate variety of options at a reasonable price.

The down side was the lack of sound speakers, therefore was not able to hear 100% of the host's description of the landmarks- that was one main reason I came to this cruise, as I wanted to learn more about the Ottawa city. Next time I'm gonna ask if the designated guide is working and whether the speakers are working, before purchasing the ticket.

Yes we sure did. It was awesome and our tour guide did a fabulous job showing us sites with regards to the diplomatics, where they lived, their unique license plates, took us to places we not find on our own. Very well done. Great job would highly recommend to other visitors. Tracey Lawrence

This interactive museum is amazing! 100% recommendable. Make sure you plan enough time for this visit (at least 2hrs). As stated in the info, really make sure you have your voucher printed.
