Your Library card gets you and your family into one of Ottawa’s many museums and historical sites.

Bring your family and learn about Canadian history, experience priceless world-class art, find out about the heroic tales of those who fought bravely for Canada, discover enormous dinosaur fossils and experience the world’s largest indoor collection of totem poles.  Ottawa’s many national museums have something to offer everyone, no matter what your interests might be.

The loan period for all passes is one (1) week and renewing the pass is not allowed.  Please note that passes cannot be reserved – they are available to CRPL patrons on a first come first serve basis.
