Canadian War Museum established as one of the world’s best

If you've never been to this museum you really need to make time if you are anywhere near Ottawa. It is truly a wonderful museum.

“It’s such an amazing vehicle for education and engagement,” says O’Neill, who was working for the war museum when it opened and served as its director general from 2007 to 2011. “I think it’s one of the best museums anywhere in the world.”

If you question that, consider this: When U.S.-based BuzzFeed asked its online community recently which museums they thought everyone should visit, the Canadian War Museum ranked eighth on an international list of 39 — the only Canadian museum to make the cut.
