This is an outstanding War Museum and should not be missed. Please allow yourself at least 4 hours to do this justice.

It is a good 2 hours minimum walk. Amazing amazing, the building itself is so beautiful. It is very rich and informing. It is a must see thing in Ottawa which is by the way an amazing city maybe the best city in Canada.

Great museum, strongly recommend that you utilise a guide if you are not familiar with Canada's war history. Excellent exhibits and an amazing building.

The displays are presented well and historical information outstanding. The tour though is dependent on the tour guide you get. The architecture and stories behind the concepts have to be seen to be believed. Highly recommended.
