As one recent visitor put it, Canadian Forces museums are the "public face of the Navy and Military in Canada". We couldn't agree more.

Here at CFB Esquimalt Naval and Military Museum, we feel a strong responsibility to tell the story of the Canadian Navy and Army on the west coast of Canada.
To meet that responsibility, we need financial support.
The museum has only limited funds, and operates on a restricted budget. The majority of our funding comes from non-public sources (i.e. not public dollars). So we must look to contributions from visiting members of the general public, and individuals and organizations who share our goals.
These organizations include the Chief and Petty Officers' Association of Esquimalt, the Korea Veterans Association, local branches of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) and Queen's Own Rifles (QOR), Royal Canadian Legions and service groups.
We can issue tax receipts for donations of $20 or more. If you're making a contribution, please specify if you require a tax receipt so we can make that available for you.
Financial support from our very low suggested admission cost of $2 for adults, $1 for seniors/students, and $5 for a family visit also helps the museum meet its goals.
Your donations help to -
~ fund museum research, special projects and publications
~ develop and enhance museum exhibits and displays
~ enable scanning and preservation of thousands of historic photos, documents and important records
~ create increased public awareness of the programs and services the museum offers
~ publish books, like On the Double, Matilda!, which was financed entirely through donations from Legions.
