The Military Museums Foundation

The Military Museums Foundation is a non-profit organization that brings Canadian military heritage to life for thousands of Albertans each year through Alberta curriculum based education programs.

Military history is more than just dates and names of battles. By providing curriculum-based education programs, the Foundation supports The Military Museums’ mission to Remember, Preserve, and Educate.

The Military Museums Foundation helps over 8,000 school children each year to stay connected to our nation’s proud military heritage. We develop and deliver over two dozen education programs that explore Canada’s military history from the War of 1812 to recent conflicts in Afghanistan and the Middle East.

Our Mission


The sacrifices of Canadians and allies in the defence of our nation and freedom by telling their stories


Artifacts and archival material related to military history with emphasis on western Canada


Canadians, with an emphasis on youth, about the impact of military events on Canada’s development and the importance of military security, as a component of national security, now and in the future

Margot Dunlap Foster

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Margot Dunlap Foster in Jan 2022.  Margot was a proud supporter of the Military museums and military history in memory of her late father, Lt. Jack Dunlap. Our condolences go out to her family, from all of us here at The Military Museums.
