The War in World War I has become a focus for a new Canadian museum in Washington, D.C., which will open in 2019.
The National War Museums will open at the U.S. Department of Defense’s Museum of the United States Military in the National War Center, part of a planned $3.9 billion project to open a museum to the World War.
“We’re very proud to be the first Canadian museum dedicated to this war,” said Annabelle Doll, the chief executive officer of the War Museum.
“There are not enough museums dedicated to the history of this conflict in Canada.”
Doll said the museum will be an “exhibit of war, of conflict, of loss and of hope” and that it will be open to visitors from all over the world.
It will be the second Canadian museum devoted to the War in the country, after the War History Museum in Toronto opened in 2016.
The War Museum in London is open for tours and will be available for public viewing through its website.
The Museum of Peace, in Toronto, will open next spring.
