Visitsed The Canadian War Museum In Ottawa

Recommended Posts

it was cool, spent the afternoon there. I recommend people to check it out at least once if you live in Ottawa or visit there.

 

Cool stuff i saw:

 

Hitler's car - (a big black topless Mercedes Benz he stood up in during motorcade's etc. Had a bunch of bullet-holes in the passenger seat window he sat in).

 

old-school AK-47 gun (you could hold it)

 

A nuclear bomb

 

Piece of burnt roof from a house that was hit by the a-bomb in Hiroshima

 

Piece of the Berlin Wall

 

A big vintage WWII Nazi flag

 

U-Boat torpedo (holy shit those are HUGE!)

 

A ton of different tanks (incl. Sherman Tank)

 

Lots of old war medals, including the Victoria Cross

 

Every war uniform imaginable

 

Tons of old guns: muskets, swords, bayonets from War of 1812 etc., grenades, German Luger from WWII

I vote we rename the thread "My Canadian War Museum is Huge" and see how many replies it gets.

 

I wish we had places like that here in the U.S. Hitler's car? That whole place would've made my spine tingle. Thanks for the information. When I go (flee) to Canada, I will visit. If you're ever in New York, I suggest going to the American Museum of Natural History at least once. They usually have a cool exhibit you can see (this month, it was Darwin).

I'm more fond of the phrase "sex cells". It's more of a play on words, you see.

 

P.S. Yes, it's adage.

one thing i wish they had at the canadian war museum is just a hall for all the people who won the Victoria Cross, i think it would be kinda cool, sorta like a hall of fame of canadian war hero's.
