Alberta Aviation Museum
Alberta Aviation Museum was founded in 1980 by a group of aviation and history enthusiasts and spent the 1980s renting temporary space at Edmonton Municipal Airport. During WWII, the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan erected the aircraft hangar that now houses the museum. It’s the only hangar of its kind that’s double-long and double-wide. The BCATP brought together men and women from the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to train pilots, navigators, and other personnel to help the Allies.

“I love this place and the information I got from the people working there. I think this was the remarkable time my father in-law had in Alberta as he never visit Edmonton before. He came in the winter but this place made his trip worth the Extreme cold 😉. I recommend you to visit the Alberta aviation museum as its has great Canadian history.” – Ali Basha

“An amazing experience coming here to enjoy traveling exhibitions and science and astronomy. I have been here many times over the years and have always enjoyed the experience. I recommend coming here for a great time and a great learning experience. There is ample parking. It’s hard to explain all that is in this place, what I recommend is just coming and checking it out and having a great time.” – Kirk Dewhurst

“Has covid restrictions in place, but because we live in Alberta and its December, the masks are dual-purpose and keeps your face warm too lol. Wasn’t busy, but we had prepaid tickets. No indoors, except the bathroom. The lights are nice and the kids enjoyed it. Roughly 25 mins to walk through the light display, 5/5 would recommend for 3 and up. Too cold for babies I feel though. Have fun, and stay safe 💖” – Alix H

“Excellent permenent exhibits on the upper level, we especially liked the rocks and gems, as well as the natural creatures that seamed life like. The bug exhibit was also a must see. This museum houses a absolute ton of smaller items in just a few rooms so remember to pase yourself and take your time. As adults I would budget 3 hours to see everything, there are a bunch of cool interactive options for kids so it could easily take a whole day with kids.” – Heather McD
