The history of war and the military might not be everyone's "thing"; but, in the immortal words of someone more famous than I (and smarter), I could be paraphrasing somewhat here: "If we don't understand out past, we're bound to repeat it!"
The Military Museums in Calgary have done a wonderful job of putting the history of Canada's military into an interesting and engaging way that draws you into their numerous displays. If you only have an hour or two, you can fly through it and get a real sense of what our military experience was during various wars. In two hours, you won't have time to read everything but you'll get a true sense of the history. If you more time, you could probably spend hours experiencing and reading everything on display in the museum.
Well worth a visit if you can. It's relatively easy to get to and there's lots of free parking. If weather is cooperative, there's some outdoor exhibits (tanks, planes, and other vehicles) too.
