We visited the Canadian War museum with a group of about 50 teenagers as part of a school trip to Ottawa. We had both a guided tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide and a self guided part as well. We were there for about 2 hours and the students wished they could have stayed a little longer which says a lot. We will be returning.

Interesting bit of Canadian history, but you don't want to be in uncomfortable shoes.

I took my children here for our March Break trip this year and I must saw, we will be back. We all learned so much from this museum. The amount of history and the ease of learning for most ages (above 5) was astounding. There is definitely something for everyone to see. Plus they have a savings offer with another local museum so with the purchase of one admission you save on the next museums admission.

The CWM is architecturally spectacular, and with a fine military artefact collection to match.

Odd layout in places, but most informative. Having vets there to talk about their experiences is a truly amazing touch. Bravo!
