This was a nice little stop during the drive between North Bay and Montreal. It's a free admission, so you donate what you think it's worth, which I really liked. There were some interesting photos and artifacts. The machines outside were also fun to walk...More

My partner and I visisted this museum last summer and we had a great time. You can probably spend anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours here. The commissioners are friendly which complements the whole experience.

Nice to see some history. However the signs around the vehicles are faded and unable to be read. Inside the museum it was too dark for me. Otherwise the history was good. Museum was also very clean.

Admission is by donation and a great history of military artifacts. Self guided tours and guided tours are available. Great displays outside that visitors can touch and feel.

It is an very interesting Military Museum. It is mostly about the troupes stationed at this CFB. It has a lot of exhibits that are well presented and displayed. A nice place to visit if you are in the area.
