Lots of military vehicles, aircraft, model ships, many types of guns and other weapons. Some reminders of Canada's horrific past. The invaders of this great land, killed many innocent people who should be its true owners. Shameful British and French colonialists.

I took my grandson and his friend to visit last month and we had a great time. The boys were already knowledgeable about the two world wars and connected with the exhibits in a powerful way. A highlight of our trip was when they chatted with a veteran who happened to be there.
