Nepean Museum

The Nepean Museum is a space where kids and families can learn and explore together. Using dozens of photos, artefacts, and interactive elements, the permanent exhibition spans the history of Nepean from its use by Algonquin peoples from time immemorial, up until Nepean’s amalgamation with Ottawa at the turn of the 21st Century. With many fun hands-on events, programs and exhibitions, you’ll find lots to discover together.
