Vaccination Certificate Required to Visit Seven Ottawa-Gatineau Museums from December 1

OTTAWA – Visitors aged 12 and over must be fully vaccinated to visit the National Museums of the National Capital Region as of this week.

From Wednesday 1 December, guests aged 12 and over must present proof of COVID-19 vaccination to visit the following museums

  • Canadian Museum of Science and Technology

  • Canadian Agricultural and Food Museum

  • Canada’s Aviation and Space Museum

  • Canadian Museum of History

  • Canadian War Museum

  • Canadian Museum of Nature

  • National Gallery of Canada

To be considered fully vaccinated, visitors must have completed an entire series of a Health Canada-approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before visiting a museum.

“For public institutions, evidence of vaccination increases their ability to help ensure the safety of visitors and staff, while reducing the spread of COVID-19,” the national museums said in a press release.

“In addition, national museums will require all staff to be fully vaccinated, in accordance with recently announced federal guidelines.”

Visitors can present either a hard copy or digital copy of their vaccination receipt along with state-issued ID that includes name and date of birth.

“Requiring proof of vaccination is another way museums ensure a safe environment for visitors and staff,” the museums said.

Visitors to The Diefenbunker at the western end of Ottawa must also be fully vaccinated to visit the Cold War Museum.
