Took my grandson here for an educational visit. He was delighted, and we both learned something new. They will take you from early Canada through the war of 1812 to todays troubled area's. Lots of WW 1 and WW 2 information and items to view.

We enjoyed seeing all the technology from past years. I was really interested in the wireless operations from WW II in the planes. It is a good museum to see.
