  • A long time ago I visited the RCR museum only to find some uniforms and medals. What a pleasant surprise to see how much displays have improved. I think every class in London and area should visit.....  more »
  • As a former RCR I found this museum outstanding. It includes 2 floors of very informative and interactive displays. It showcases all periods of The Regiment’s illustrious history from its inception...  more »
  • As a Veteran, I often enjoy visiting and learning about our Canadian military history. I wanted to visit the RCR colleges and so we did and it was a nice place to visit and learn.  more »
