Canadian War Museum
The Canadian War Museum has a long and distinguished history dating back as far as 1880. During this time, the Canadian War Museum consisted primarily of a collection of militia artifacts. Most of the museums collections were stored in an old streetcar barn in west-central Ottawa. By May 2001, the federal government announced its support for the construction of a new Canadian War Museum and in May 2005 the grand opening also celebrated the 125th anniversary of the Canadian War Museum itself.
