HTML tutorial 150 years

We are now open for another fun season and this year will be even more important as we celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary. Our Museum is dedicated to telling the story of Canada’s military and civilian aviation history, now we tie this in with this historic country-wide celebration. Come and learn what part Canada, and in particular Atlantic Canada, played over the past 150 years.

With Billy Mink kids can discover just how flight is possible and learn about some of the very special unique aircraft we have here in our Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum.

HTML tutorial Events for all 

We are already off to a fantastic start this year with our 3rd and probably best ever Annual Family Fun Day which was held this year on June 10 and our Volunteer Appreciation Day that took place on July 15.

But don’t worry there is still lots more happening throughout year at our Museum – If you love cars and planes you are in for real treat as our 2nd annual Wings n’ Wheels day will be held on August 12.
