The Ontario Regiment RCAC Museum

The Ontario Regiment RCAC Museum has a Historic collection of over 80 operational military vehicles including jeeps, trucks, carriers and tanks.

Reviewed By 2deang - Kitchener, Canada

If you are into tanks this museum is a must when in the area. This is a living museum where all the vehicles are operational. So on any given Saturday they hold a tank day based on a different theme and do reenactments. The best one is the Aquino weekend in June their biggest show of the year. They have an interesting small museum with the history of the Ontario Regiment and with the large expansion just completed there is lots to see! They continually add vehicles to the mix including new WW II German armour. An absolute must for Tank and military buffs....

I spent the better part of 4 hours here visiting the numerous rooms depicting Canada's Military History, watching several short videos, and looking at the 3 dozen or so collection on military vehicles and weapons. This is a must see place in Ottawa when you are there. There is also a nice gift shop for souvenirs.

Reviewed By VAPilot - Vienna, United States

Great place to learn more about the British experience in the War of 1812! Musicians, "troops" drilling in period costume, cannons, one original building and plenty of other realistically reconstructed buildings with detailed histories. Don't miss the musket firing drill! Kids loved it.

Reviewed By amclay9 - Toronto, Canada

This is a great place to spend an hour or two, the staff are super friendly and knowledgeable and some were even sailors on the ship in the past (shoutout to Andy for the navigation lesson). The ship is huge and every time you turn around it seems like there is something new to explore.

Also in the Airpark are some 11,000 Ad Astra Stones and 35 Monuments that tribute past and current members of the RCAF.

Have been several times and learned something every time. Veterans conduct fascinating tours and relive their experiences and vast knowledge of these legendary artifacts. Original models of over 40 aircraft are on display both inside and outside the air park. A great outing and a real gem in our own backyard.
