Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada, Winnipeg

4.6
#4 of 25 in Museums in Winnipeg
Visit the second-largest aviation museum in the country at Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada, a collection housed in an original Trans-Canada Air Lines hangar. Keep your eyes peeled for Canada's first helicopter, hidden among the displays of historic military jets, bush planes, and commercial aircraft. Although the aircraft themselves are fascinating, you can get just as much from a visit to the aviation reference library. In addition to photographs, drawings, and audiotapes, its collection features a rare five-minute video clip of Amelia Earhart embarking on her trans-Atlantic flight. Finish off your visit by watching landings and takeoffs from the fully enclosed flight deck.

  • Very interesting! Lots of airplanes and history packed into the hangers. It should be even better when they get the new location up and running. Love it when they bring in the old but still flyable planes for special events. They do need to advertise those better. Too often you hear about it after the fact.
  • A well presented museum. Nice variety of aircraft both passenger and Canadian forces. Staff are very helpful, there was a display that required a “tour” in order to board the craft, staff member took us aboard and gave us the tour, super cool and thank you! Worth a visit, they were doing a kids birthday party as well, good community interaction.
  • This museum is a must go if you are into the world of aviation. Highly recommended. Great place to take your kids to show them some really cool aircraft.
  • Attended a birthday party here a few weeks ago with my son. Museum was great and staff were great. Kids were entertained and so we're the adults. There's also a play area upstairs that the kids had a blast playing in.
  • Hadn't been in about 15 years. They didn't have the play area for the kids back then, and I didn't have kids... LOL The kids had a ton of fun, and the price is very reasonable. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
