With its prize-winning, richly symbolic architecture, the War Museum, located near downtown Ottawa, provides a spectacular setting for exhibitions, public programs and other events that illustrate the way in which human conflict, in Canada and around the globe, has changed the face of the world.

Discover the military history of Canada through a vast collection of artifacts, moving personal stories, works of art, and unforgettable photography. Explore the human conflicts that have shaped Canada, Canadians and the world.

A must-see is the panoramic LeBreton Gallery, which houses a Voodoo jet, tanks, artillery, and a wide range of military vehicles. The highlight of any visit is the Museum’s extensive permanent exhibition, which chronicles Canada’s military past from ancient times to the contemporary period.
