Upon entering the actual exhibit, not knowing where to start, a lovely gentleman explained how to experience the entire exhibit in a logical manner. The exhibit was broken down into four sections in chronological order. Amazing to realize Canada had been involved in so much warfare. The entire experience was educational and somewhat simple to absorb. I realized how little I knew of our country's war history. I liked the simplicity and open layout depicting so many scenes of history. We unfortunately only had two hours to spend here, but I felt I experienced much. I would definitely return when visiting Ottawa again. I would begin with World War 2 as I felt this was the era in which Canada sacrificed the most. A definite place to visit. So glad this museum exists. P.S. The tanks in the lower level were a must see!

This tour was very good. They touched on the history of the buildings of the surrounding area but it would have been nice to start the tour with a little about Ottawa., ie, when it was founded, etc. I would definitely recommend this tour

Once upon the life experience that you better make as a present.

Once upon the life experience that you better make as a present to whom you love. Their confused and excited eyesights with a childish sparks in their eyes will be the best compensation for the overpriced tickets.

This interactive museum is amazing! 100% recommendable. Make sure you plan enough time for this visit (at least 2hrs). As stated in the info, really make sure you have your voucher printed.

A Tour of Ottawa’s Top Buildings in an Hour

The tour guide made the tour interesting and meaningful. My family especially enjoyed the view of Parliment Hill from the Ottawa River.
