Ottawa: Bytown Museum

People familiar with the Mandarin language could soon have their ears opened to a new side of Ottawa. The Bytown Museum will be offering audio guides in six languages, including Mandarin. It's fitting, perhaps, that during Asian Heritage month, Asians will have a new way to learn about their city's past. This week, a select group of volunteers donned the headphones to give the museum's new audio guide a test run.

CBC Radio's Ottawa Morning went down to capture the sounds. Listen Audio (runs 4:17)

Members of the public will be able to take an audio tour of the Bytown Museum in six different languages starting June 13. You can learn about the stories and exhibits of Ottawa in English and French, as well as Mandarin, Japanese, Spanish, and German.
