#OGSConf2017 Canadian War Museum visit

If you're part of the official conference tour group to the Canadian War Museum on Thursday you're in for a good time. The museum is most interesting. Check out what's happening at http://www.warmuseum.ca/ .

One frequently overlooked facility is the Military History Research Centre.  Two extensive national collections of primary and secondary research material document Canada’s military history from the colonial period to the present.

If there's something in particular you want to consult as with any visit to a similar facility it's a good idea to check they have what you want available so it can be waiting for you. Unfortunately at present the online catalogue of holdings is not available. I suggest calling the toll free number 1-800-555-5621 instead.

The CWM has a cafeteria with a patio. It could be pleasant as the forecast is high 21C, but with 40 percent chance of a shower. You may possibly find the used bookstore of the Friends organization open, it's on the right as you approach the Research Centre.
