More than 10 500 vi­si­tors

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - LE MOT DU COMMANDANT -

This year, the Air De­fense Mu­seum pre­sen­ted for the first time an ori­gi­nal ex­hi­bi­tion on the his­to­ry of Ca­na­dian avia­tion as seen through art.

En­tit­led "Mi­li­ta­ry Art: The Great War of To­day", this ex­hi­bi­tion crea­ted by the mu­seum team al­lo­wed vi­si­tors to learn more about the work of Ca­na­dian ar­tists who re­pre­sen­ted the glo­ry of sol­diers and hu­man tra­ge­dies du­ring the two world wars, but al­so du­ring the other conflicts of this cen­tu­ry. This ex­hi­bi­tion was ad­ded to those al­rea­dy present: Mas­ters of the Sky and State of Alert. Al­though at­ten­dance did not start out hea­vy this sea­son, the num­ber of vi­si­tors still clim­bed to 10,500 by the end of the sea­son, des­pite the loss of vi­si­bi­li­ty cau­sed by the ope­ning of the new high­way in the spring. More than 800 fo­rei­gn vi­si­tors ex­pe­rien­ced and saw CFB Ba­got­ville thanks to Fall crui­sers, a re­cord for the mu­seum.
