Borden Military Museum

Borden Military Museum

The main museum tells the story of Camp Borden and the various schools, Corps and Branches that have their heritage vested at Canadian Forces Base Borden. Camp Borden was officially open on July 11, 1916 by the Minister of Militia and Defence Major General Sir Sam Hughes, KCB, MP. In the 1930's the Base became the headquarters of the first armoured school, headed by the then Major F.F. Worthington. Other schools were soon added to the base making it the most important training Base in Canada. Over one half of the soldiers who served in the Canadian Army overseas during WWI and WWII received some training here. Camp Borden is the birth place of Canada's Air Force and location of the first purpose build aircraft hangar (a National Historic Site).
