Canada Agriculture Museum


The Canada Agriculture Museum in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, houses a modern working farm. Its purpose is to illustrate how advances in farming science and technology have transformed the lives of Canadians. The museum holds exhibits, public programs, special events, and live demonstrations. While the animal barns are open year round, exhibitions are only on view from March to October of each year. It holds an annual "Sheep Shearing Festival" each May.
It is located off Prince of Wales Drive at the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa. The museum is controlled by the Canada Science and Technology Museum Corporation, which is responsible for preserving and protecting Canada's scientific and technical heritage. The Corporation has a staff of about 275 and is responsible for three museums: Canada Agriculture Museum, Canada Science and Technology Museum and Canada Aviation Museum. The Museum is affiliated with the Canadian Museums Association, the Canadian Heritage Information Network, and the Virtual Museum of Canada.
