A very nice treat for the military history and electronics and communications enthusiasts. Little advertised and known to public. Entry is free but donations are welcome. Splendid display of WW1 and WW2 military communication equipment and other details

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.

This is a good museum about subject matter that typically gets overlooked in the historical narrative. It does a good job of covered the Canadian military (and really universal) evolution of communications through several time periods. It was fun to see all of the different...More
