OTTAWA MUSEUM OF HISTORY

Recognized as one of the premier cultural facilities of the twentieth century, the Canadian Museum of History houses more than 3.75 million artifacts spanning the disciplines of history, archaeology, folk culture, ethnology, postal communications and various other areas of heritage study.

 

These Museum galleries and exhibitions will come to life during your Conundrum Adventure as you explore Canada from its earliest origins right up to its present day icons. Your team will tackle an eclectic array of challenges. Will you be able to improve the recipe for Pemmican, a Fur Trade staple? Does your team have what it takes to locate a survivor of Canada's worst Maritime disaster? When a postal carrier asks for your help, will your team be able to ensure the mail gets delivered?

 

Although our Museum of History adventure challenges are diverse, they have one overriding commonality: they will get your team talking, planning, problem solving, and laughing.

 

If you are planning your group activities as part of a bigger company function, the Canadian Museum of History is an excellent venue for corporate meetings and events. Conveniently located minutes from downtown Ottawa, and recognized as a preferred event destination, the Museum is ideal for a wide range of corporate functions. We've also compiled a list of "Team Building Friendly" establishments in the area.

This was the practical side of team building, doing rather than reading, it goes further and has better results.

Loved listening to everyone "thinking out loud", brainstorming, ...and then "AHA! Got it!" miraculously at the same time!  This happened a few times.  Really great synergy.

I enjoyed the puzzles, and the fact that they made use of a variety of skill sets.
