CFB Borden Military Museum
The CFB Borden Military Museum houses a large collection of weapons, uniforms, military vehicles, aircraft and peacetime mementos, heritage buildings and a memorial park. Half of all Canadian soldiers who served in two World wars were trained at Camp Borden, which is also the birth site of the Royal Canadian Air Force. The history of the Canadian Armed Forces is on display and open to the public. Located on an active military base just outside on Angus, Ontario, Canadian Forces Base Borden was named for the late Prime Minister Borden who founded the base in response to Canada’s participation in World War One.
