Colourful and rich, the Canadian War Museum
in Gatineau, Canada, immerses visitors in great historical moments. The museum presents Canada’s rich military history through the eyes of ordinary people, who experienced war on the battlefields or in their own homes. The museum will take you on a fascinating journey through the individual, national and international dimensions of Canada’s military history. The moving stories told by men, women and children who lived through conflicts are told via a large collection of military vehicles, artillery, artwork, artefacts of all sizes--from medals to the CF Voodoo fighter. Beginning June 15, 2012, the Canadian War Museum
will highlight the bicentennial of the War of 1812, an event of capital importance for Canadian history, via one of the largest and most innovative exhibitions it has ever produced.
