The Canadian War Museum Ottawa Attractions

Ottawa Central Experimental FarmApril showers bring May flowers! A popular saying that holds true most years, which requires some creative thinking for indoor things to do during  spring rains! If you are new to the Ottawa area, and not sure about where to find some interesting indoor entertainment, don’t worry, Ottawa has quite a large selection-including the highly acclaimed Canadian War Museum, which is currently featuring four band new photography  exhibitions. They are:

  • Eleven Women Facing War by Nick Danziger showcasing eleven stories of women from Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Colombia, The Balkans, Israel and the Palestinian Territories.
  • Kandahar-The Fighting Season by Louie Palu showcasing the heartfelt dedication and honor of Canadian soldiers deployed to Afghanistan from 2005-2011.
  • The Princess of Wales’ Own Regiment: 150 Years of Service showcasing historical photographs and stories from 1885 all the way to the recent Afghanistan conflict.
  • Ordinary People in Extraordinary Times showcasing 10 diverse portraits depicting moments from the first world war through to the Afghanistan conflict to movingly illustrate the human experience in wartime. Simply breathtaking.
