Elgin Military Museum & The Museum of Naval History
The Elgin Military Museum was created to collect, record, preserve, interpret, and exhibit items of military history, with an emphasis on Elgin County and its citizens, and the role they have played in Canadian military history from the founding of the Talbot Settlement to today.
We are a military museum that was formed by ordinary citizens to recognize the contribution of other ordinary citizens who were called upon to meet the extraordinary circumstances of war.
The Museum has worked to exhibit items relating to military history with an emphasis on Elgin County and its residents. Today, the Museum boasts close to 9,000 files on individuals from the County, some dating back to the War of 1812, and the research is ongoing.
A plan to convert the former HMCS Ojibwa, an Oberon Class submarine from the Cold War era, to a museum facility is underway. The Museum Board and membership see Project Ojibwa as a natural progression to the museum and its mandate. This project is a great addition to our community, creating a wonderful attraction.
