Located just 10 minutes from downtown, Billings Estate National Historic Site was once home to one of Ottawa’s founding families. Through hands-on investigation and multi-sensory exhibitions, you’ll find yourself immersed in the story of five generations of the Billings family from 1812 until 1975.

Spend the day exploring, experiencing, and discovering almost 200 years of history!

Join the museum for high tea in the summer and a wide variety of public programming and special events year round.
