On Friday, 30 September the Canadian Museum of History and Canadian War Museum are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with free admission all day.
This is in recognition of the second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, also known as Orange Shirt Day. This day recognizes the legacy of residential schools and honours the lost children and survivors of residential schools, their families, and their communities.
At both museums the film Picking Up the Pieces: The Making of the Witness Blanket will be shown from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Admission is free, but you meed to book a timed ticket online before your visit.

The Witness Blanket is incredible. The film is so heartwarming to see and witness the process of the witness blanket. I think the film is also available online somewhere. Youtube?? I saw it last year that way. A visit to one of the museums would be eventful too. Thank you for sharing this information. Wished I lived in Ottawa and area to be able to go in person.
