In many of its exhibitions, the Canadian War Museum offers unique experiences to visitors of all ages. In some cases, special activities are created for children and families to help demonstrate a key message from respective exhibitions. These activities can take the form of games, interactive displays, or demonstrations by the Museum’s staff and volunteers.

Below are examples of two such activities, both of which make use of extensive illustration to present the content in a colourful, unique, and engaging way.

Victory Garden Illustrations

On the homefront during the First World War, many Canadians were encouraged to grow ‘victory gardens’ to allow more food to be sent to the troops. This activity challenged visitors to choose and arrange vegetable ’blocks’ within a limited plot size, in order to maximize their garden’s output.
