Historic Sites of Manitoba: Brandon Armoury / 26th Field Regiment Museum (1116 Victoria Avenue, Brandon)

The three-storey brick Brandon Armoury was built in 1907 on a design by Brandon architect Thomas Sinclair, and an addition was made in 1937. Over the years, it has housed the Royal North West Mounted Police, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, 99th Manitoba Rangers, XII Manitoba Dragoon, and 26th Field Artillery Regiment. A museum, archives and library on the first floor has been open to the public since 1979.
