It is an extremely interesting museum that has a large collection of military equipment, machinery, very informative videos and other information showing Canada's involvement in WW1 and WW2. It will definitely enrich your knowledge about Canada.

The museum is well laid out and covers Canadian participation in all major conflicts. Volunteer vets are often available to explain events and equipment from their first hand experiences. Don't miss the gallery of vehicles on the lower level.

Picked up the Museum Guide. Layout was very easy to follow. There was so much history to learn. All these movies we watch and they use all kinds of tanks, artillery, etc. and here it’s right before our eyes to be seen. Really worth seeing.
