The Osgoode Township Museum has been serving our community as a museum (formerly as an historical society) since 1973! The OTM tells the story of Ottawa’s agricultural and rural heritage, with a focus on agriculture in the former Osgoode Township. The Museum houses a collection of approximately 10,000 artefacts, ranging from housewares and clothing to full sized tractors and other farming equipment in our two main exhibition spaces.

If you visit during the spring, summer, or fall, you’ll get a chance to wander around the 10,000 square foot heritage garden modeled after a 1907 School Garden, orchard, and grounds. Inside the museum, our brand new permanent exhibition space displays the incredible story of our township and its people. Learn stories of how Indigenous people and the first European settlers paved a path for our current day rural community members, and how these residents are cultivating their connections with the past, present and future! The museum hosts a variety of family-friendly online workshops, talks and programs, and creates connections through partnerships with other organizations in the community. Our largest event of the year is the Harvest Festival (held in September), a true celebration of our rural heritage.
