September 24, 2015

Ottawa, Ontario, September 24, 2015 — The Canadian War Museum is proud to be recognized once again by TripAdvisor as one of the best museums in the country, ranking third among the top 10 museums in Canada for the second year in a row. The annual Travellers’ Choice awards highlight the top 1 percent of attractions in the world, based on the quantity and quality of visitors’ reviews over a 12-month period.

“We are pleased that so many visitors to the Canadian War Museum enjoy their experience enough to take the time to leave positive comments on TripAdvisor,” said Stephen Quick, Director General of the Canadian War Museum. “We are proud to be consistently ranked as one of Canada’s most highly recommended museums, and we will continue to produce the exceptional exhibitions and programming that make this a must-see attraction.”

TripAdvisor recommends Travellers’ Choice destinations every year using an algorithm that weighs millions of website users’ opinions. More than 95 percent of reviews of the War Museum rated it “excellent” or “very good.” Recent visitors described it as “absolutely amazing,” “incredibly well done,” “one of the most informative museums we have been to” and “a fabulous learning experience with great staff.”

“Honouring nearly 600 institutions worldwide, the Travellers’ Choice awards have recognized the favourite museums that serve as cultural treasure troves for our community of millions,” said Barbara Messing, Chief Marketing Officer for TripAdvisor. “These world-class museums provide an enriching experience that can be both inspiring and educational for travellers around the globe.”

Earlier this year, TripAdvisor welcomed the Canadian War Museum into its Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame, which honours attractions that have won a TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence five years in a row. The online review site also lists the War Museum as #1 among 190 “Top things to do in Ottawa.”

The Canadian War Museum is Canada’s national museum of military history. Its mission is to promote public understanding of Canada’s military history in its personal, national and international dimensions. Work of the Canadian War Museum is made possible in part through financial support of the Government of Canada.
