“Favorite Museum for the little ones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

OK little ones, bring our parents they will enjoy this place. Oh look they have animals you can pet, some are not for petting, it's just a very fun place for the little short stops in our family. It's where with supervision you can let your little ones run around and marvel at all the animals.

“A gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

I am interested in agricultural history and this is a real gem. They have rare and older breeds of Canadian cows and pigs and horses. The barns are beautifully maintained and it allows children face to face access with farm animals and teaches them about the realities of farming. We are lucky to have this

“Take the kiddies!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Ottawa's Arboretum and Central Experimental Farm are part of the Government of Canada's Department of Agriculture. Still a working research centre, the Farm is open to the public and provides city kids with a working farm experience. It really is a treasure. Spring is the best time to visit the farm - the baby animals delight children. The Arboretum features beautiful gardens with apple trees in spectacular bloom. During the summer its a great place for locals to bike, walk and run.

This is a must for anyone with children. My Grandson got to name a calf and this was a red letter day for him. We are hooked!
