It is a very good place to visit with friends and family to discover all about war and history. It is worth to go for a visit and check everything and souvenirs.

I wasn't as blown away as I had expected to be. On the same trip we went to the Aviation Museum and thought it more enjoyable. We were especially disappointed at the price of parking on top of the museum fee. Given that the museum is on the edge of town, parking should be free or much lower cost. Public transit is good so if you are close to the bus line, it would be a better option

Well worth a visit for the building and the collection. I've visited this place a few times now and always find something new I hadn't seen before.

The museum in new, and continues to evolve, but is one of the most interesting to visit in Ottawa. Displays are explained well, and are accessible for all age groups.

This is a very well laid out museum and is very interesting. The exhibits treat the subject matter with respect while effectively providing the history and impressing the viewer with the horrors of war. Well worth the visit.
