For many years the L&W museum, was located at Butler’s Barracks National Historic site. During the L&W museum’s time at Butler’s Barracks our exhibits traced the 200 year history of the Lincoln and Welland regiment. Starting with the Regiment’s origins during the American Revolution, continuing through the War of 1812, the Fenian Raids, the late 19th century, participation in WWI, WWII, the Cold War, peacekeeping missions and lastly, participation in Afghanistan.
However, in 2016 the L&W museum moved our collection out of the Butler’s Barracks to focus on our current project The Niagara Military Heritage Centre. However, we will have portions of our collection on display at temporary exhibit locations and upcoming events! Scroll below for temporary exhibit locations or follow us on social media.

At the Lincoln and Welland Regiment Museum, we are fortunate to have an expansive and diverse vehicle collection. With the help of our vehicle volunteers, our collection has grown significantly over the past few years. We pride ourselves on maintaining much of the collection in running condition. Our holdings include both tracked and wheeled vehicles that represent military technology used over the past 70 years. Our vehicles are regularly brought out for public display at various special events, please contact the museum for more information.
