  • 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...

  • It is worth visiting, free of cost. This is something like out of sight treasure about a lot of unknown history facts. Can gain a great extent of knowledge.
  • A hidden gem, and free admission to boot. Gentleman at the door was friendly and very informative. Fantastic displays and artefacts all around; the medals room was especially impressive. All this, enclosed in a beautiful 140 year old building. Do yourself a favour and stop by! I'm glad I did, but make sure you have a few hours to kill!
  • We visited the Royal Canadian Regiment museum this past week and it blew our minds. I'm not totally sure why we didn't think it would be that great, perhaps because there is no charge to visit, but, boy, were we pleasantly surprised. The exhibits are very well done and move chronologically through the various wars and battles the VRI/RCR have fought in. The artifacts that have been donated by veterans and their families are in outstanding condition and the displays are well curated and described in adjacent infographics. I really enjoyed the exhibit with the drawers of medals that have been donated to the museum by veterans families. Some of the medals had a photo or other personal effects displayed so you could see who they belonged to. It was very humbling to walk through the RCR museum. There were several interactive displays, including a VR simulation of a WWI battle. The gentleman who greeted us was knowledgeable, kind and provided background on the establishment of the VRI/RCR before we got started through the exhibits. We were so impressed with the Royal Canadian Regiment museum, The artifacts and exhibits are wonderful to see and read about. I highly recommend a visit if you are in London, ON.
  • Thank you, Sarah for the amazing tour!
