Called in for a visit as something to do on a wet day, but did't leave enough time to see everything properly. I have a background in military communications myself, but didn't realise the extent of involvement of the Canadian Army communicators in the development of Canada, especially in the more remote areas of the country. Very interesting and comprehensive... More

Stopped off to break down our journey across East Canada. Was a lot more to see than we expected! Lots of vehicles, electronics,uniforms and machines through the ages, well worth a visit, voluntary donations by the entrance.

Sort of a depressing exhibit although there were a few neat hings I hadn't heard or seen of before. Liked the behind the lines bunker exhibit and the pins.

Stopped in here so the kids could check it out. My older son loved all the artifacts and the exhibits showing how communication in the military has changed through years.

If you are interested in this type of museum you will stay here for a while reading so much information and looking at all the material presented. Very clean.

Many visitors may not be able to understand how some of the technology functioned. They should leave the exhibit area knowing the importance of the little known signal corp, the risks the corp took to keep forces informed and the evolution of their equipment. What a great display accomplished by diligent volunteers. Well done.

This was a very interesting visit. A lot of information regarding military communications. We were surprised to see the enigma machine after seeing the movie recently. A lot of displays and more than I expected. don't forget to make a donation on your way out as this is free.

If you go in with some appreciation of old-fashioned radios, radar equipment et cetera, you'll find many interesting artifacts in this museum. On the other hand, if the subject doesn't particularly interest you, you may find the museum a little boring. It could definitely have done more to appeal. For example, very few of the devices on display are operational... More

We were traveling Kingston early in the week and decided to stop in for a visit. The display is much more extensive than I had anticipated. Much thought and creativity is reflected in the exhibits. You will find a captured "Enigma" device similar to the one decoded by Alan Turing in WWII which is subject of the film "The Imitation... More
