About Canadian War Museum

The Canadian War Museum (Musee Canadien De La Guerre) is the national military history museum.

With over 2,000 artefacts on display ranging from weapons to vehicles as well as photos, interactive and artistic exhibits, the Canadian War Museum looks at the military history of Canada. It focuses particularly from the perspective of the personal experiences of those who took part and were affected by historic conflicts, both at home and on the battlefield.

The remit of the Canadian War Museum begins with exploring the very concept of war and moves from aboriginal warfare through to the European imperial wars, the South African Wars up to both World Wars and beyond.
