Very interesting museum tracing the history of the Canadian Armed Forces. The Army is the primary focus, but they also have the longest history.

This was hard to find and signage could have been better but what a fantastic place. Lots of scenes and interesting exhibits, and added bonus was the veterans and their stories. There is lots to see here and about 4 hours covered it for us....More
