    a great tour of Canadian history. Informative and friendly staff. Nice to see the inside after seeing the boat from the water and walk ways.

    After an outdoor-only visit to Dundurn Castle, our next stop was the Hamilton Military Museum conveniently located southside of the castle grounds, just steps from York Blvd. Originally a gate house built 40 metres away, this 1830s building was moved to its current location in the 1970s. Since we visited during Doors Open Hamilton (May 7), admission was free.

    We got a friendly hello from staff at the entrance hall and before long we were on a leisurely self-guided tour. Our time was spent mostly on the first floor browsing the framed displays on the walls--an interesting assemblage of historical information, colourful illustrations and either genuine artifacts or well-made reproductions. There is even a selfie booth/dress-up station where visitors can pose wearing a military coatee a la 1812. Upstairs, there are a few more artifacts, a small movie room, an activity room where kids could play and a current exhibition about 3 Ontarians based on their surviving WWI letters.

    This is a small museum and it took us less than 30 mins to explore it.

    I lucked into this little museum after visiting the HMCS Haida, since it’s right next door. Museum curator Steve took (ret Capt. W) spent a lot of time with me explaining the artifacts. A number of uniforms including many women’s Canadian Army uniforms. As a history buff, I found it interesting. If you visit the Haida and the 31st Battalion museum is open, check it out for 30-60 minutes.
