An up-date from our Museum Curatorial Committee


This year at The Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum has certainly been an exciting one. Not only were we able to start a great many restoration projects but we were also able to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary.

Throughout the season we shared with our visitors the unforgettable events of 9/11, what happened during that time and the role that the wonderful people of Halifax played helping those in need. We also delved into the amazing delights of space travel, what makes it all possible and how far we have come since that first flight in the Silver Dart.

We are very proud to be able to display one of the tires from the Space Shuttle Columbia, personally singed by our very own Canadian Astronaut, Chris Hadfield, himself and kindly donated to us by Michelin.

And let’s not forget our very popular Events days that were held during June, July and August, every year they are even more popular with many more people coming to visit, getting their chance to not only see what has been happening at the Museum, but to also meet and talk to our team of dedicated volunteers – who, without them none of this would be possible – our thanks goes out to each and every one for helping to make this year our most successful yet!

But don’t forget we are still open Tuesday-Sunday from 10am to 5pm until September 30, 2017.
