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.

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.
Immensément instructif!

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!!

Ver la cara de mi hijo al ver toda esa historia y armamento ese sentir de los soldados al estar en las trincheras vida dura.
