The Rideau Canal Museum (RCM) is a not for profit, independent museum designed to educate the public regarding the history, construction and present uses of the Rideau Canal. It interprets and presents the history of the Rideau Canal from Kingston to Ottawa.
The Rideau Canal Museum is the flagship interpretation centre for the entire historic Rideau Canal – a Canadian Heritage River, a National Historic Site of Canada and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our interpretive staff and volunteers, along with high-technology displays and a variety of artefacts, bring to life the story of the Rideau Canal – its construction from 1826 to 1832, its exceptional role throughout history, as well as the distinct lifestyle and folklore associated with the Rideau Waterway.
