  • One of the best museums of its kind in Canada. Small but very filled with artefacts and stories of Canadians in times of war. I make it a point each year to visit the Comox Valley to see what this amazing museum has on exhibit. This year it is an exhibit on the stories of children in war. Excellent job once more and extremely moving experience. If you like museums like the National War Museum in Ottawa or the Calgary military museums, you will love this small gem in downtown Courtenay.
  • This was an amazing experience. Very powerful stories are being remembered here. Thank you Lewis.
