The EF Vimy 100 Exhibition features an experiential journey that begins with a to scale recreation of a First World War trench. Programming also includes 4D and VR tech, interactive exhibits, and immersive workshops to allow visitors to follow in the footsteps of Canadian soldiers, reflect on how the country's role in the First World War has impacted Canada's place in the world (and in the context of its upcoming 150th), and be challenged to think about ways they can positively impact their own communities when they return home. Exhibiting partners include Historica Canada, Canadian Geographic Education, the Canadian War Museum, Invictus Games, SimWave, WE, the Rick Hansen Foundation, and Culinary Historians of Canada, among many others.

The EF Vimy 100 Exhibition offers news organizations an easy way to connect with EF Educational Tours travellers as well as the partner organizations that helped bring this "pop-up" museum to life, and capture Vimy 100-specific content to share with their readers, viewers, and listeners.
