The military parachutist, commonly known as a PARA in the armed forces, is an extraordinary infantry soldier. The PARA exhibition is a journey through the history, qualities, traditions, training, and specific techniques of these seasoned warriors. Visitors will discover an exceptional set of badges, symbolic objects, and images from the collections and archives of Musée Royal 22e Régiment, private collections, and military institutions. This amazing showcase will help everyone learn about the history of Canadian parachuting and common symbols of paratroopers around the world.

Visitors will get a more concrete vision during an immersive experience where they simulate getting ready to jump out of a Hercules airplane amid images, parachutes, and decor that create the perfect ambiance.

This major public exhibition is sure to please both curious adults and the whole family. Skydiving fans can also leave their mark by entering their name and the number of jumps they’ve made on the “How many jumps have you made?” wall.

A booklet of activities (riddles, observation, etc.) is available to the kids for free. Back to the house, discover the answers in this booklet.
