Tank days are once a month in the summers. So interesting. Have seen re-enactments of the collections of vehicles in many wars, operated by original military personnel. Bought a tank ride for my 2 sons birthday gifts and they were thrilled. Did my "Love Canada" submission there on Sept. 10/16. I hope it gets used in the 150 year documentary.... More

This is an amazing assortment of armoured vehicles. Kids will love it. You can watch the vehicle and then go for a ride on one of them

A small, but nicely curated museum. The volunteers are enthusiastic and take great pride in the collection and are very knowledgeable. Many artifacts were donated families and individuals from the area. I enjoyed the trench art in particular. We saw some vehicles, but didn't get to see most of the tank/vehicle collection as it was being readied for the winter... More

Must see for military history enthusiasts. Lots of vehicles from WWII, Cold War, recent conflicts. 1st Saturday of each summer month you will get to see some of the vehicles in action!

We went to the Regiment Museum for the last Tank Saturday of the year and really enjoyed it. Lots of tanks on show with lots of information about them. It was a particularly dry day and the path the tanks drove on is dirt, so it was very very very dusty when the tanks drove past. Unpleasantly so. I recommend... More

We went on the 5 ton army trick ride today. It was fun, exciting and very rough so I would recommend that you hold your kids if they are small or try a tank ride though I'm not sure how they drive. The volunteer staff are great and very helpful so just ask. The tank show was exciting and cool... More

Tank Saturdays at The Ontario Regiment RCAC Museum brings these amazing machines to life. The squeaks of the tank tracks and the roar of the guns make this far more than a museum. There are so many tanks and other military vehicles to see here and the actual museum takes you back through history. Countless hours have been spent restoring... More
