Military Communications & Electronics Museum

What is the Military Communications & Electronics Museum in Kingston, Ontario?

Since 1963 it has served the role of educating both members of Canada’s military and the civilian population about Canada’s military communication capabilities and systems, and the equipment used to fill that need.

The Communications& Electronics branch of the Canadian military is responsible to ensure that military personnel and the Canadian government can communicate as and when needed wherever they happened to be stationed around the world.

Communications has been the focus of this – first complimentary and then singular – force since the early 1900’s.
