The Royal Canadian Artillery Museum — Canada’s National Artillery Museum — is the only museum in the world dedicated to telling the story of the more than 200,000 Gunners who have served Canada. It is the central museum for The Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery, which has been part of Canadian history for 150 years. In 1962, the Canadian Forces established the RCA Museum to preserve and interpret this proud heritage for future generations.
The museum has amassed a collection and archives of national significance with over 65,000 artifacts, including more than 170 artillery pieces and vehicles. Among the treasures is one of the largest collections of military vehicles and artillery systems in Canada. The collection reflects the long history of the Canadian Artillery. The museum also has an extensive collection of approximately four hundred rifles, pistols, and edged weapons dating back to the 1700s.
