The Canadian Food and Agriculture Museum is a working farm right in the heart of Ottawa. It offers several buildings with a plethora of exhibitions for all to enjoy. From sheep to tractors to a lab about soil, this museum covers every area of agriculture. This site is a must-see to learn all about farm life and how agriculture works.
The museum has several barns of animals throughout the property available for viewing. There is a small animal barn, filled with chickens, rabbits, and many other small, friendly farm critters. Just beside that is a field for sheep. The museum also hosts two cow barns: one is a dairy barn which acts as a functioning dairy farm, and the other hosts beef cattle as well as horses.
Education is the first priority of the Museum of Agriculture and the learning centre is the perfect place to be educated. It focuses on the process of farming and the various ways food gets from the fields to the table. It also has several scientific labs that tackle important issues such as food preservation and the importance of soil.
Playstructure and Discovery Park
A great outdoor space within the park, the zone allows for kids to run around and explore the beauty of nature. The play structure provides a nice break from looking and learning and lets kids experience the vast farm land around them.
