The facility, the exhibits, the guides, the scenery, the history ... magnificent!!! And, it remains an active military facility. It was fun to see some active duty troops returning to their quarters with hockey equipment in their backpacks.

We decided to see the Governor's Residence rather than the army side. It was a very interesting tour with guide Maud. The tour was fully accessible for my wheelchair and the fact that it was free of charge was an added bonus!
