Early Conflict

The walkway up to the War Museum's permanent collection features banners going back in history of Canadians at arms.


A central hub is here, with images of what's to come- the Museum's galleries are organized chronologically.


The first gallery starts from the beginnings of time up to the late 19th century. Armed conflict in Canada starts with the indigenous peoples, and so the Museum's focus begins there.


Reproduction weapons of Indigenous warriors are at left, while a model of an Iroquois village is at right.


The village and its surroundings are very detailed, with interpretive panels explaining life both in peace and in war for Iroquois people.

  4. The Canadian War Museum should be a reminder not to have any more wars. Take care, have a great day!

  6. I am afraid that remembrance of war is often the incitement to the next one.

    1. One way to end that one is someone putting a couple of well placed rounds into the head of that little man in Moscow.

  14. i like how they've set it up in your photos, I've seen something similar at Waitangi at Paihia, it was a bit more interesting than normal displays.

    I do wish there were no wars, and we could all live together peaceably.
