Come and explore the vintage aircraft that spurred the romance, courage and clashes that mark the last century of flight. The Alberta Aviation Museum is located in the last remaining double-long, double-wide hangar from the World War II era, and at over 75 years old, is a protected municipal and provincial historic resource.

Check out the de Havilland Mosquito, a World War II combat aircraft, and the Cirrus Moth, one of the earliest examples of aircraft in Edmonton. Explore their new displays, and test your own piloting skills on the flight simulator. Learn about historic aviation achievements, from bush flying to famous war battles, as well as Northern Alberta’s rich aviation history. Medals, badges and vintage photos take you inside the heroic journey of Canada’s famous aviators. The Alberta Aviation Museum is where history takes flight!
