At British Columbia’s most significant Military Museum

We invite you to browse through the more than 25 exhibits and displays showcasing Canada’s proud Military History and Traditions.

For more than a quarter-century, the museum has assembled a truly impressive collection of military memorabilia and artifacts from the War of 1812 right through to Canada’s involvement in Afghanistan.

Examine life on the home front and the important work of the Red Cross, St John’s Ambulance, the Salvation Army, RCMP, and the critical role played by the Merchant Navy in wartime.

Follow the evolution of Women in the Armed Forces, from Nursing Sisters during the Boer War to present-day operations in all branches of our Armed Forces.

The museum is located in downtown Nanaimo’s dynamic waterfront; close to the Port Theatre, the Inner Harbour Boat Basin, Cruise Ship Facility, the Nanaimo Conference Centre, Tourism Office, and many Major Hotels.
