    Administrative history

    The Canadian Scottish Regimental museum was opened by the Regiment's Colonel-in-Chief Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra, GCVO, CD in May 1980. The museum is a non-publicly funded organization that is operated by a group of dedicated volunteers. The museum is a member of the Canadian Museums Association, the British Columbia Museums Association, and the Organization of Military Museums of Canada and Tourism Victoria. It is housed in the Armoury on 715 Bay Street, Victoria, British Columbia. Displays include material from the earliest days of the Regiment to its participation in United Nations peacekeeping operations. Since its opening, the museum has held many special displays, including a collection Victoria Crosses won by members of the 16th Battalion (The Canadian Scottish) during the First World War. This display was opened by British Columbia's Lieutenant Governor and the Regiment's most recent recruit cut the ribbon. The museum continues to accept donations of items pertaining to the Canadian military.
