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 under special circumstances) and can be adapted to your needs.
To enquire about experiencing this program or to request additional information, please contact our Lead Educator.

“I loved how straightforward, how the education was easily digestible. Not sugar-coating things. I also liked the activities.” (T.Y., student, 2022)
“The program is powerful enrichment of and perspective into my high school social studies course. The students were engaged, challenged, and provoked into thinking about issues in a new and interesting way.” (G.P., CCSD Teacher, 2022)
