Alberta Aviation Museum Edmonton Review

edmonton aviation museum

Edmonton has been called the "Gateway to the North" so it seems appropriate to find a large aviation museum located in Edmonton.

Boasting over thirty aircraft, the Edmonton Aviation Museum is the third largest aviation museum in Canada. The museum also has over forty exhibits and display cabinets, providing guests with hours of interesting and informative bits of aviation history.

Museum-goers will enjoy watching experts painstakingly working to restore various aircraft in the special aircraft restoration area.

Wanna be pilots of every age can try out flight simulators (call for times and restrictions) or sit in the cockpit of a jet fighter.

The museum also displays some great personal artifacts of famed Canadian aviators.

So what types of aircraft does the museum have on display? Museum patrons can enjoy viewing many different aircraft including:

  • Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck (1952)
  • Barkley-Grow T8P (1937)
  • Boeing CIM-10B BOMARC (1958)
  • Canadair CT-133 Silver Star (1952)
  • Cranwell CLA.4 (1927)
  • Curtiss Stinson Special (1918)
  • De Havilland Canada Tiger Moth (1938)
  • Fleet 80 Canuck
  • McDonnell CF-101 Voodoo (1957)
  • McHardy 2/3 Scale Lysander (1992)
  • Piccard Hot Air Balloon (1968)
  • Sindgler 5/8 Scale Hurricane (1987)
  • Vickers Viking IV (1923)
  • And many more!
