My partner and I visisted this museum last summer and we had a great time. You can probably spend anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours here. The commissioners are friendly which complements the whole experience.

Admission is by donation and a great history of military artifacts. Self guided tours and guided tours are available. Great displays outside that visitors can touch and feel.

It is an very interesting Military Museum. It is mostly about the troupes stationed at this CFB. It has a lot of exhibits that are well presented and displayed. A nice place to visit if you are in the area.

I have been here a number of times for short visits with the kids. There is lots to see and they love the vehicle displays. Everything is well maintained and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable

It may not cover the entire history of the CF, but does a good job with local units. Worth a visit if in the area.

An abundance of Canadian history, well worth going to. Put together very well. Looks small from the outside but it is amazing how much info they have in there.
