About the Museum:

TEMPORARILY CLOSED WHILE NEW FACILITY IS BUILT

The Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada offers a unique mix of history and science. Enter through ‘Gate 1’ – the original Trans Canada Airlines (now Air Canada) passenger terminal – step back in time and let the pioneer aviators of the north take you on an inspirational journey through time!

Your visit will be filled with tales from the sky, great ideas (and not so great ideas) in flight, and a true appreciation for the adventuring spirit.

The original aircraft hangar, including several one-of-a-kind aircraft, such as Canada’s first helicopter, the CL-84 Tilt-wing, our ‘flying saucer’ Avrocar, and of course, historic military jets, bushplanes and commercial aircraft.

The Windsock Gift Shop is Canada’s largest aviation book store. We carry books that feature the Canadian Air Force, bush flying, aviation biographies, children’s stories and more. There is also a wide selection of aviation gifts, memorabilia, toys, model kits, prints, posters and pins. Be sure to drop in while you’re visiting the museum.

Skyways Discovery Zone is the interactive discovery exhibit – a place where children can interact with the exhibits that demonstrate gravity and other aspects of flight. There are cockpits to climb into, engines to explore and many buttons and levers to push and pull… and an indoor runway perfect for paper airplanes.
