The Military Museums

The Mural of Honour

The Mural of Honour was launched in November 2005 as a fundraising project for the new Founders' Gallery at the Military Museums. The process of installing the individual Mural panels in the atrium of The Military Museums began in November 2006, and the completed mural was unveiled on 9 November 2007. 

The 240 panels represent Canada’s military history from the War of 1812 to Afghanistan, and the collective stories reveal the different theatres of war Canadians have been involved in for nearly 200 years, including both overseas and domestic operations.

On 9 November 2020, The Military Museums announced the release of a new mobile-friendly version of the interactive Mural of Honour, fifteen years after the original project was launched.
