Come celebrate Canada’s 150 birthday with the biggest, time-trippiest, way-back throwback party in Ottawa!

We’ll be closing out the Nocturne season with groovy tunes, spectacular surprises, and more Canadiana than you can shake a prehistoric beaver at:

  • Be among the first to visit the new Canada Goose Arctic Gallery.
  • Take part in unusual activities such as teapot racing and parasol dueling!
  • Meet figures from the museum's past through Live History: Viola MacMillan, Percy Taverner, Alice Wilson and Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
  • Pose with fantastic characters like the superhero Ultimate Canadian and Steampunks.
  • Sing with a Canadian version of "C" karaoke!
  • Dance the night away with JUMP!106.9's DJs Katrella and The Kid Gorgeous.

Costume Recommendations
Break out the red and white, or get ready to doff your top hat and slip on your poodle skirt; we’re looking to see your best Canadian pride through the ages.

What You Need to Know

  • All ticket sales are final.
  • Suit up and dress to impress; a cool (safe!) costume is always in style.

  • No smoking or vaping allowed in the building.

To ensure the safety of our guests, we may
