The museum is prepared for the Remembrance Season 2016. Our tribute to men and women who served or serve under the Canadian Military will be paid with a Wall of Remembrance, installed in the reception area. Starting 29 Oct, everyone is welcome to share their thoughts at this time or present their respects by writting on the 'poppy cards' that can be attached to the blue structure.

The museum will open on extended hours, from 10am to 8pm.
