Planning a Group Visit

The Canadian Museum of History and the Canadian Children’s Museum offer a full range of services and educational resources.

Online Visit Planning Tool

The Museum offers a wide range of tours, programs, movies and educational offerings.

The Online Planning Tool allows you to browse suggested pre-made itineraries or create your own.


Our Call Centre agents are available to take your booking and answer any of your questions, Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST. and on weekends and statutory holidays from 9 a.m to 4 p.m EST. Please call 819-776-7014 or 1-800-555-5621, or email us at:

Booking requests can also be submitted through the Online Visit Planning Tool.

The Museums gets very busy, we therefore recommend booking at least three weeks prior to the visit.


We recommend that your group arrives a minimum of 20 minutes before the scheduled start of your program. If you arrive at the Museum late, we cannot guarantee your reserved program or tour. In the event of inclement weather or other unexpected delays, please call en route to advise our Call Centre at 819-776-7014 or 1-800-555-5621. Once your group is at the Group Entrance, please have one of your representatives check in at the desk. Students will receive a brief welcome and orientation to the Museum before proceeding with their visit or program.

Adult Supervision

Teachers and parent helpers have an important role to play. We rely on your support to keep the group together during your program or tour, to solve any discipline problems that may arise, and to participate in smaller group work.


If your group is planning to stay for lunch, the Museum has a full-service café, where hot lunches, sandwiches, and snacks can be purchased. The Panorama Café offers group menus. Contact our Call Centre for more information on options and prices. If you wish to bring your own food, the Museum has a lunchroom at your disposal, next to the Group Entrance. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis so we recommend that you reserve your places upon arrival.

Personal Belongings

Storage lockers located in the Group Entrance area will be assigned to your group, free of charge.


The Museum is fully accessible. Should your group have any special needs, please mention them when you make your booking.
