About this activity

The 48th Highlanders Museum exists to collect, preserve, and present the history, tradition and heritage of the 48th Highlanders of Canada and to exhibit the physical legacy of the Regiment and interpret its experience in war and peace.

The history of the 48th Highlanders is presented for the benefit of former and present members of the Regiment and their relatives plus the general public. Further the museum exists to develop programs that broaden, and deepen the appreciation and understanding of the 48th Highlanders, stimulate interest in and maintain the relevance of the Regiment's past for future generations.
