The Canadian Scottish Regimental Museum
The Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Mary’s) Regimental Museum is located upstairs in the heritage building of the Bay Street Armoury at 715 Bay St. in Victoria, BC. This museum is an accredited museum of the Canadian Forces and was opened by the Regiment’s Colonel-in-Chief, Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra, GCVO, CD, in May 1980.The museum is one of the best regimental museums in Canada. Visitors come from all over the world to view its relics and artifacts. It is a non-publicly funded organization that is operated by a group of dedicated volunteers.The museum’s displays include materiel from the earliest days of the Regiment to participation in United Nations peacekeeping and NATO operations. The museum has a large collection of Lee-variant rifles, probably one of the most unique firearms collections in Canada. Thanks to John Wigmore, the Museum’s director, the museum just recently opened an exhibit to honour those who have fallen on tours of duty in Afghanistan.
