Our museum education program, currently running in four provinces, takes a unique approach to learning about Canadian military history by embedding the educational content within an experiential, innovative, and team-based learning framework. In Calgary, this day-long, museum-based program consists of 4 – 6 modules through which students will progress sequentially, as well as an artifact handling session with a real soldier. The Character of our Canadian Military History program (CCMH) is ideal for groups of 20 – 45 (school classes, cadet groups, scouts/girl guides, etc., as high as 80) and can be adapted to your needs.
