Remember, learn and understand
, Aug. 2022
Great history of the conflicts that have shaped Canada. Special exhibit brought to light human toll of conflict on Canadian lives. Good to remember those who sacrificed so much for our Canada today.
Fun at the museum

Really interesting ,was a great for the whole family. Very friendly staff,and clean.
Learn from each other.
, Jul. 2022
Terrible to see how people oppress others or try to, and the human cost of war. There has always been fighting amongst rival communities, countries, religions and everything that separates because of differences. Rather than learning from each other, people resist furiously.
Everything there is...

Everything there is memorable for me because I appreciate those who laid their lives for the freedom we are enjoying today.

Each section had clearly written information explaining the improtance and impact on Canadian history
Human History... you have to see that.
, Apr. 2022
It was great to see how much money and efforts humans can invest into armful objects to destroy each other. And that, is since... forever... and much more nowadays and even more in the future. Anyhow, the tanks are masterful. A.Hitler's car parade is a convertible Mercedes Benz, I feel so petite and small beside it. Ok, I am petite.

My kids really liked to see the tanks and aircraft on the first floor; also the materials regarding the plains of Abraham.
Canada History of wars
, Sep. 2021
We were not given enough time to see everything in the museum. The sight doesn’t let us know that there are at least 2 hours needed for walk around. Please be aware if you are interested in reading and listening to exhibited items Take more than 2 hours. There are two floors and the upset floor is much more informative about Canada history the lowest floor is about recent armoured equipment like tanks ship, vehicles
Historical war overview was interesting
, Sep. 2021
We went and read most of the information and watched some video shorts. This will take 3 hours or so. Historical war section was very interesting.
Excellent. Will go again.
, Sep. 2021
The displays were well presented and interesting. I also thought that having different sections was easier to walk through and learn more.
WW2 world
, Sep. 2021
WW2 and war of 1812. We like the RCAF part in the women’s role in the war and away from the war.Lineups for a world war two part three but we missed the room with the vehicles and there was no signage that we saw directing us to the front of the building for that tour. Otherwise it was great
Ottawa visit
, Sep. 2021
We took our two grandsons and they were enthralled with the whole experience. One of the best war/military museums i have ever visited. Personally it was my third visit and I still found lots of new things to explore.
, Aug. 2021
Very informative and friendly staff. Took my wife and 2 kids (5 and 3). So much stuff to take in and read so better to have waited till the kids were older. My kids did enjoy all the tanks and equipment.
, Jul. 2021
Excellent collection of items from all ages ! All the vehicules and weapons are in a perfect state of conservation.
, Jul. 2021
Amazing place!! Emotional experience! Had my grandson with me, such a good experience for him. Disappointed that the museum closed at 4. Could of stayed for a few more hours.
Un musée extraordinaire et instructif.
, Aug. 2022
Musée incroyable qui fait bien connaître notre histoire militaire et notre implication pour la liberté. Une bonne visite demande un minimum de 6 heures 30 pour avoir le temps de tout voir et regarder. La journée passe rapidement et c est un endroit merveilleux. Je le recommande.
Nous avions réservé notre...
, Jul. 2022
Nous avions réservé notre visite pour 15hr et heureusement que nous sommes arrivés plus tôt car la durée de la visite est estimé à 3 hrs et le site ferme à 17h, nous aurions clairement manqué de temps pour tous voir.
Immensément instructif!
, May 2022
Un musée qui en vaut le coût, c'est tellement immense! C'est instructif et on peut facilement y passer la journée. Excellente sortie en couple ou pour toute la famille!!
