Opened in 2014, this exhibit recounts the epic story of Canadians who fought in the First World War--with a special focus on the experiences of Nova Scotian soldiers who served and sacrificed in the “war to end all wars.”
Canada was a young nation of just 8 million people when the First World War erupted in 1914. Over the next four years, more than 600,000 Canadians “went over” to fight for freedom, thousands more men and women remained at home to support the cause. This is their story.

The Army Museum is home to the most complete scale model of the famous Vimy Memorial, a massive and emotionally powerful monument to the sacrifice of Canadians who fought and died in the First World War. The scale model is the centerpiece of this amazing exhibit.
