Interpretive Tulip Legacy Exhibit

May 5-21

Learn more about the Tulip Story by visiting the Tulip Legacy Exhibit. You’ll find out about:

• Princess Juliana of the Netherland’s stay in Ottawa,

• The birth of Princess Margriet at the Ottawa Civic Hospital,

• The role of Canadian soldiers in helping to free the Netherlands during the Second World War, and

• The Capital’s tulip tradition.

The Tulip Legacy Exhibit celebrates the historic Royal gift of tulips from the Dutch to Canadians as a symbol of international friendship while preserving the legacy of the role of the Canadian troops in the liberation of Europe. The display also commemorates the birth of Dutch Princess Margriet in Ottawa during World War II—the only royal personage ever born in Canada. These historical circumstances led to the creation of the Canadian Tulip Festival as it is today.
