Visit the museum
Your visit to the 48th Highlanders Museum will immerse you in our traditions and proud history:
- from Victorian Toronto in 1891 when the Regiment was formed to the present day.
- from the South Africa battlefield at the turn of the century, to Europe through two World Wars to the conflict in Afghanistan and with UN and NATO commitments working in aid of peace in all four corners of the globe.
- through aid to Canadians across the country in times of disaster and need, and
- though our extensive collection of artefacts, uniforms, images and records including historic items such as our battlefield cross from Vimy Ridge and a copy of the German surrender in WWII signed by General Montgomery.
We welcome school groups and we can tailor our tours to meet your specific needs. Click HERE for more information.
