Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada, Winnipeg

4.5
#4 of 18 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.

  • 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.
  • Excellent museum. Would have like to have seen more of the aircraft open for sitting inside, but aside from that, great experience. Kids seem to love the Skywalk kids area.
  • Our kids love it here (so do we!). Lots of neat planes and a fun little kids play area.
  • Had my grandsons birthday party here & ended up learning all kinds of interesting things about the planes they had there. Staff was friendly & great with all the kids
