The Elgin Military Museum
Give us a call at our main office at the Elgin Military Museum and our friendly staff will be happy to book tours for you, give you information about group tours, or answer any other questions you may have about the Elgin Military Museum in St. Thomas or HMCS Ojibwa, our remarkable Cold War Oberon Class Submarine located in nearby Port Burwell, Ontario.
EMM is completely accessible to people with mobility needs. We are happy to provide wheelchairs to those who wish to borrow them. We also provide convenient seating in all areas of the Museum.
Heads up about email bounce backs end of February-early March 2017. I just found out that some of our emails have started to bounce back. This appears to be caused by our change of servers which transferred the web stuff but not the email. This means our projectojibwa emails continued to go to the old server which no longer recognized the addresses. The problem should be resolved before I have to go to the submarine Saturday. I think we have done everything at our end and now it can take twenty four to forty eight hours to repopulate the system in the great beyond! So, hopefully this will do the trick.

HMCS OJIBWA sits in the valley below the main street of Port Burwell (Robinson St.). As you drive south on Robinson, look right and you will see her stark black fin peeking out between the stores and restaurants. Don't get carried away, you need to turn right at Pitt St. just before the lighthouse.
