Canadian War Museum
The Canadian War Museum has developed a number of ways to work in cooperation with educators teaching Canadian military history to grades four through twelve. Museum and gallery tours, as well as classroom visits, are outlined as possibilities. Contact information is also provided.
Various programmes and activities at the Canadian War Museum are presented, including special events, film series, speakers series, school programmes, teachers' activity kits, and the Canadian War Museum History Award.
This article describes how the Canadian War Museum came to have custody of seventeen of the plaster figures of the Vimy Memorial created by Canadian sculptor Walter Allward, as well as the historical significance of the memorial.
