Good Overview of Local Units

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.

With Family in the Military, I really enjoyed my time at this museum. I don't know if there is anything indoors.. we spent most of the time here out with the trucks and equipment. Very hands on and great for pictures. We all had a great time!

This museum has a ton to look at and our children love all the vehicles outside. They have done a very good job displaying everything and it's definitely worth a visit with the whole family.
