HMCS Alberni Museum and Memorial – Tribute to Canadian and British men who served

Discover – Reflect – Remember.

A non-profiet-profit, Remembrance Program, Museum.

The HMCS ALBERNI Museum and Memorial is dedicated to preserving the memory of those who served onboard the corvette HMCS ALBERNI during WWII. This Canadian warship was sunk by the German submarine U480 off the Isle of Wight, with the loss of 59 brave men.

Our mission is to honour their memory and through this focus, we also pay tribute to all the sailors, soldiers, and aviators who have served and continue to serve our country. The artefacts and stories of these individuals offer visitors a glimpse of the selfless sacrifice that has defined Canada’s past, present, and future.

The museum is operated by The Alberni Project Society which focuses attention on the lives and stories of Canadians who served with Canada’s military from the Great War of 1914 – 1918, and onwards to the present day.
