The National Historical Arms Museum (NHAM) is a division of the Canadian Historical Arms Museum Inc. (CHAM) which is a non-profit organization that was incorporated in 2010 in the Province of Ontario, Canada. We strive to preserve, protect, and restore small arms and their associated accessories and technical literature for current and future generations. At this time, NHAM is an archive museum. Currently, the public can view museum artifacts at events across Ontario, and now online. As of December 2017, we launched a $3.5 million Capital Campaign with the aim to build a physical location open to the public. The new building will house the unique and growing collection of artifacts adopting an interactive and personal approach that will help visitors to understand the historical evolution, role, and impact of small arms around the world.
