Emotional, educational, and enlightening, Canadian War Museum brings to life the stories that shaped Canadian military history. Housed in one of the country's architectural landmarks, the museum displays a comprehensive collection that includes artworks, weapons, military vehicles, uniforms, and other war-related items. Through numerous large multimedia exhibits, including a replica World War I trench, you'll feel immersed in the experience of war. Visit the gallery dedicated to recent conflicts, where an interactive space provokes visitors to form their own conclusions about war and peace. At night, the building's facade lights up with messages spelled out in Morse code.

Canadian War Museum reviews
A great place to go to yourself or with family. A lot of different exponents that are worth checking out. They tell the story of the greater conflict through the contribution of Canada. Lots of great uniforms, photos and vehicles in this place. Plus the architecture is definitely something that draws the eye. I highly recommend the war museum as an Ottawa must.
Amazing museum at a really cheap price. It was around 19$ with taxes and if you want to see everything you really have to take the whole day. We came around 13:00 and took a dinner there and had to leave because it closed at 20:00 and we even had to skip some stuff! There's so much stuff to see from different era and the last room with all the vehicles was really impressive. There's a small area to commemorate the dead which is a nice touch as well.
