Picnic at the Museum
The Canada Agriculture Museum is ideal for picnics! In the shade of the apples blossoms, under a tent or in the sun, visitors can enjoy the sights and sounds of the outdoors as they snack or have lunch. We cannot permit the use of barbecues or hibachis on the Museum site. The Museum has vending machines for hot and cold beverages and light snacks but does not offer food services.
