Located in the west end of Ottawa, Goulbourn Museum shares the story of the 100th Regiment of Foot, settlement & early pioneer life. We'll be blogging about events, museum work & new artefacts.

Tonight we have a group of 24 Sparks coming to the Museum. We're excited to have such a big group in, and we're also looking forward to trying a new craft :) If you're local, you may know that Richmond, ON (part of the greater City of Ottawa) was named after the Duke of Richmond, and he died of rabies on the shores of the Jock River during a visit to the village named after him. It is believed that he contracted rabies from a soldier's pet fox three months before his death.
A sad story, we know, but a fox craft helps us tell the story of the Duke to youth groups. And the fox is so cute! For more information about our programs or to book your group, email Tracey, our Education & Community Programmer.
