This was a great way to spend an afternoon. To be honest, we had intended to visit the main museum in downtown Calgary, but it was closed on Mondays and we had some time to kill otherwise we wouldn't have come across this place. We were really glad we did though. There were lots of exhibits, covering not only the normal war stuff, but also be human impact of war, with a great temporary exhibition about women across the world having being impacted by various wars. Really interesting stuff.
Of course no military museum would be complete without large metal geegaws to look at, and it didn't disappoint. Most of the tanks are actually outside the building, with maritime and air force exhibits inside. There were some interesting videos scattered throughout, and various dioramas depicting Canada's involvement in each of its key wars. Definitely worth a trip out.
