The Second World War 

The Second World War was the most devastating and largest conflict in human history, so far reaching and wide spread that I doubt there is a single person on earth who doesn't either know about it or have a personal connection to it.

From the fields of Alberta harvesting grain, to the factories of the Soviet Union and jungles of the South Pacific, this war was fought on every front imaginable and by people from all walks of life. Millions of Indian, African and Asian troops left their homelands to fight. Men and women from nearly every country on earth fought and died across countless battlefields. 

The stories are endless and can offer us a small insight into the world and the horrors some of these people faced. This website is not political and all uniforms and artifacts are presented for their historical importance, with their own stories.

About us

The War Dungeon is a private collection and museum on Vancouver Island, BC. Over the past several years, with the help of friends and family, we have renovated the basement of our home into a large museum. The displays here cover from the Boer War, all the way to the Vietnam War of the 1960s.  

We try to cover all aspects and countries involved wherever possible, and we are always looking to add new and interesting displays to help honor the men and women who sacrificed so much for us. We offer guided  tours upon request as well as on site displays for special occasions.
