The Royal Canadian Artillery Museum (RCA Museum) will host the “Mission Afghanistan” exhibit from 25 February 2022 to 24 June 2022. The Military Museums of Calgary and the Directorate of History and Heritage developed the million-dollar travelling exhibit to recognize the achievements of Canadians during the Afghanistan War (2001-2014). Over 40,000 Canadians served in combat roles until 2011, then in training roles until 2014.
Mission Afghanistan is an immersive, first-person exhibit covering 2,000 square feet in our temporary gallery. Visitors explore the Afghanistan War through the eyes of Canadian soldiers, including wounded soldiers and key decision-makers. The exhibition includes many artifacts from Afghanistan, multimedia, and text panels arranged chronologically.
We invite visitors to come and experience Mission Afghanistan.
