The RCA Museum at CFB Shilo is a proud recipient of the Award of Excellence from the Association of Manitoba Museums for their exhibit series on the Canadian experience throughout WWI. The RCA Museum’s series of temporary exhibits were recognized for eloquently and thoroughly presenting the impact of the First World War.
As visitors went through each exhibit over the past four years, they have learned about the events of this devastating and transformative conflict. Visitors have experienced the impact on the men who fought, examined the impacts on science, medicine, and even the arts, as well as discovering how that war changed the way we live our lives today.
The award was formally presented at a ceremony in Steinbach, MB September 21, 2018.
