Canadian War Museum admitted to TripAdvisor`s Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame

The Canadian War Museum is pleased to announce that it is among the first group of attractions to be welcomed into TripAdvisor `s Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame. This unique honour was created to recognize attractions that have won TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence five years in a row.

“We are thrilled to be recognized in this way by TripAdvisor, at a time when we are also celebrating 10 years in our new building on LeBreton Flats.” says Mark O’Neill, president and Chief Executive Officer of the Canadian War Museum and the Canadian Museum of History. “The War Museum is proud to be consistently recognized as one of Canada’s top museums, and we will continue to strive for the excellence visitors have come to expect.”

Now in its fifth year, the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award celebrates excellence in hospitality, and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great reviews on TripAdvisor. When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor determines the honorees with an algorithm that weighs the quality, quantity and recentness of reviews and opinions submitted to TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. The attraction’s tenure and ranking on the site’s Popularity Index is also taken into account.

News of this award comes only a few weeks after the Canadian War Museum was recognized as one of the of the world’s 39 must-see museums — and the only Canadian institution — on a list compiled by BuzzFeed, a popular online community forum based in the United States.

The Canadian War Museum is Canada’s national museum of military history. Its mission is to promote public understanding of Canada’s military history in its personal, national, and international dimensions.
