A piece of History

This was a short 15 minute stop along the boardwalk. The placards offer just enough information to allow you to envision the times.

My family went to visit the regiment museum. When you walk in there is a sign saying you need to sign in but there wasn't anyone in sight. We were finally told where to go. The area is quite cramped but the displays are interesting.

I went with a friend and it was really badly annonced. There was nobody at the door to show us where it was or to explain us what was the Museum. We had to find it on our own. In the Museum, there was a BIG lack of information about the objects. Besides that, all the objects that were there... More

Toured this Museum with my daughter and 7 yr old grandson. found the displays very well put together and lots of interesting things to see. It is small but still enjoyed our visit there.

This is a small free museum inside of the operational Queen Charlotte Armory. It's a really good stop if you are near Charlotte. It's steps away from the water so you could always go there around lunch and have a nice picnic afterwards. It mostly showcases the uniforms, rifles and medals.

Nice and easy walk from the center of the city, along a beautiful promenade path. Lots of benches around to sit and enjoy the atmosphere and the battlement display is simple but interesting.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a self-serve tour and of course donations can be contributed. If you are interested in history, please check it out.

The Museum is located in the "Armouries" at the corner of Water and Haviland Streets. Displays of uniforms, armaments, documents, medals, pictures, letters et al tell part of the story of Islanders and their commitment to their country in peace and war. A section devoted to the Medical Corps is very sentimental for many a visitor. There are also artifacts... More

I was impressed with the range of items and the scope of the items by era and origin. The Director and his staff have assembled an incredible number of exhibits. I, wish I had a full day. Much more if you are a history or equipment buff. Recognized the #19 Set from my Cadet Days with Can Scots in Victoria,... More

Unassuming presentation of a comprehensive collection of Canadian war memorabilia. Some emotive stories narrated by story boards but on occasion you can lose the plot as you wander around.
