Your Definitive Source of Ottawa Workers’ History
Since 2011, the Workers’ History Museum has celebrated, interpreted, and preserved the history, heritage and culture of working people in the National Capital Region, the Ottawa Valley and far beyond.
WHM creates permanent, travelling and virtual exhibits, maintains an extensive photographic archive and an artefact collection, organizes storytelling evenings, walking tours, oral history seminars and other events, publishes books and graphic novels and even makes movies. Our collections are focused on workers as individuals, as well as employees, as trades, as industry and many other aspects of the life of working people.
The volunteer board collaborates with other heritage, academic and labour organizations to bring workers’ history to the public, over a wide range of platforms.
