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!
