About The Military Museums
Just about every aspect of Canada's armed forces is covered at the Military Museums, a sprawling center of historical artifacts and in-depth history. Along with glistening aircraft and rugged armored vehicles, the museum is home to subtler collections of stories and artifacts spanning more than 200 years of domestic and international wars.
- Size: The second-largest military museum in the country consists of multiple sub-museums, which include four regimental museums, branch-specific museums, an art gallery, and The Military Museums Library and Archives.
- Eye Catcher: The museum's lawn holds a CF-5 Freedom Fighter, a sleek supersonic jet that was used in combat, reconnaissance, and training missions throughout the latter half of the 20th century.
- Permanent Mainstay: the The CF-104 Starfighter, a dazzling Cold War–era jet that traveled at speeds up to 1,550 miles per hour and soared to space-scraping heights of 100,100 feet.
- Don't Miss: an early version of the Enigma Machine, a rotorized cipher machine that created complex codes to mask communication between German U-boats during World War II.
- Hidden Gem: Hardcore history buffs should peruse the Military Museums Library and Archives, a bastion of military knowledge that contains more than 20,000 books and periodicals.
