Educational teaches about many wars that happened in Canadian history like WWI and WWII. Tanks and War machines are present in the building. However, don't buy lunch there very expensive pricing.

It was a fun trip but, it needed more things to interact with like games, board games, and etc... But overall it was a fantastic trip if you want to know more of the trenches and the war.

I love this museum for what it isn't - it does not glorify war but gives a realistic overview to conflict and peace. The architecture of the building itself is worth a visit.
