Summer Getaway Day 1 - Ottawa - Canadian War Museum

Wednesday, October 8, 2014
Our getaway officially started at 9 that morning. It was going to be a long day for us as we made our way from Mississauga to Ottawa. At least a 5-hour drive to be exact.

We eventually arrived at our destination at around 2:30pm. We were a little too early for our hotel check-in, which was only happening at around 4pm so we decided to swing by the Canadian War Museum.

The Canadian War Museum is a national museum detailing Canada's military past and how it shaped the country. The museum had a vast collection of war pieces that included artillery and armoured tanks. The whole place was very informative about the role Canada had in the different wars throughout history.

The museum kept us busy for just over an hour and half. After which, we left and were on our way to the hotel.

Here's a few photos to give you some idea of what you can see with a visit to the museum:
