Get Up Close and Personal with Local History
The Ottawa Museum Network’s new Connexion Card offers a great way for families to take advantage of all the fun programming at community museums

Do you have your Connexion Card yet? It’s the Ottawa Museum Network (OWN)’s new loyalty program.

“The Connexion Card offers Ottawa residents the chance to get up close and personal with Ottawa’s unique history,’ says Laura Giberson, the OWN’s executive director. “With free admission to nine museums and access to exclusive family-friendly events, the card offers year-round value.”

Geared to Ottawa families, the card applies to nine local museums:

  • Billings Estate National Historic Site
  • Bytown Museum
  • Cumberland Heritage Village Museum
  • Diefenbunker: Canada’s Cold War Museum
  • Goulbourn Museum
  • Osgoode Township Historical Society and Museum
  • Pinhey’s Point Historic Site
  • Vanier Museopark
  •  Watson’s Mill




Advantages include:

  • Free regular admission at each museum for a whole year
  • Subscription to the Connexion e-newsletter
  • Exclusive event invitations at each museum
  • Discounts on select museum programs

The Connexion Card can be purchased through the OMN website, by calling the OMN offices at 613-234-1999 or by filling out a registration form in person at one of the nine participating museums.

It’s an affordable way for Ottawa families to enjoy all of the great programming offered at the city’s community museums.  A family-level Connexion Card is $70 and allows entry for a maximum of two adults with a minimum of one child under the age of 18.  An individual-level Connexion Card is $50.

The Connexion Card project was funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Ontario Ministry of Tourism and Culture (Cultural Strategic Investment Fund).  The OMN also recognizes the ongoing support of the City of Ottawa.
