We came here with our children on vacation. We found the Memorial busy with tour guides able to tell us things that we could do, and information about Ottawa, since we are from the States. We got to see the changing of the guard.

The War Memorial is located in a centre point in downtown Ottawa. Close to parliament, Elgin street and the byward market most people visiting can take the 20 minutes to walk over and read the information and see the Statues.

Just walking around you will see many statues and this is another nice one. A nice monument to Canadian soldiers.

We thought a couple hours would do it. No way! So much to see. Give yourself 3 hours just to go through everything. If you are Canadian this is a must do!

This is the place to go to remember the people who gave for our country. Simply a large carved monument close to parliament.

Most impressive when I visited in June and saw the DDay memorial, any time of year this is a tasteful and fitting tribute to the unknown warrior beneath. Visiting lately in March I found the snow on the shoulders of the bronze very photogenic and...More

Quite impressive memory of wars. It is well displayed along the Parliament Hill stretch, and although it is not monumental in size, it is impressive. Worth a picture or two!
