The Museum
 

As a registered non-profit society The Alberni Project Society’s goal is to collect, interpret, display and preserve the history of Canada’s role in WWII and to convey the personal stories and events of a global war.


TAP opened in its new permanent home in the Comox Centre Mall on September 1, 2013.  With a little under 2000 square feet of exhibit, office and archive space, plus our mobile exhibit unit, TAP/HAMM was visited by over 5600 people in 2014.


Our main exhibit hall in Comox features archive and artifacts which have been donated or are on long term loan to tell the story of Canadians during WWII. Included as part of our museum experience is our video room where visitors can view documentary films on The Battle of the Atlantic, HMCS Alberni and tributes to Canadian veterans of all ages.  Documentaries are changed every week so there is a variety each time you visit our museum.


2014 was designated The Year of the Veteran in the Comox Valley.  TAP was proud to head up this homage to our veterans with a variety of additional displays, public events and community involvement at our Comox Mall and other locations on Vancouver Island. For our work with the YOTV we received a nomination for the Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Community Programming.  In 2015 HAMM was awarded the Heritage Award from the Town of Comox.


All TAP exhibits are wheelchair accessible.
