Abstract: During CHA council meetings last November of 2006 CHA council members were given a first-rate tour of the recently completed Canadian War Museum, located on the LeBreton Flats, a plain of wetland and former industrial land adjascent to networks of mill races and hydro dams on the right bank of the Ottawa River. The tour was given by CWM World War. One curator and historian Tim Cook. The tour allowed visitors to take in the remarkable breadth, chronological and thematic, of the CWM permanent exhibition, from the pre-contact(native) ways of fighting to the Seven Years War and all the way up to and well into the 20th century marked by two World Wars, the Korean War etc. Dr. Cook shared with visitors the challenges of preparing a display — what works, what does not work.
