Canadian War Museum
This site describes the history and source of the Canadian War Museum's war art collections of 13,000 works. It describes the origins of the Canadian War Memorials of the First World War (1914-1918), the Canadian War Records of the Second World War (1939-1945), and the post-war Canadian Armed Forces Civilian Artists Program.
The Canadian War Museum has developed a number of ways to work in cooperation with educators teaching Canadian military history to grades four through twelve. Museum and gallery tours, as well as classroom visits, are outlined as possibilities. Contact information is also provided.
