About the Museum

The Secrets of Radar Museum was founded in 2001 by former RCAF and RAF WWII veterans and people with a deep commitment to history, and opened to the public on May 24, 2003. The Secrets of Radar Museum is an incorporated not-for-profit museum located in London, Ontario.  We are committed to sharing Canadian radar history, from its earliest secret experimentation to recent advances, and most importantly, to the preservation of real life stories and personal experiences of the people who have worked and continue to work in radar..

The Mandate of the museum is threefold:

  1. To preserve the history and artifacts of the men and women who have served the RADAR division of the Canadian Forces;
  2. To educate the public on the history of RADAR in Canada;
  3. To provide a therapeutic setting for veterans.
