Our young visitors

If you are looking for the perfect mix of education and fun look no further than our very own Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum. Here children, schools and other organized groups can get up-close to what makes Atlantic Canada aviation so important and exciting.

Children will be enthralled and entertained with our very own Kidoon’s Character – Billy Mink. His educational video takes children through a brief history of Atlantic Canada aviation, from the start with the Silver Dart, a replica of which can be seen at the Museum; right through the World Wars to the age of space flight. Billy even explains to children just how flight itself is made possible.

As with every group tour Museum entry is free, as are the guided tours themselves, if however your school or group would like to make a donation please feel free to do so at our main entrance. Every donation we receive goes to help maintain the Museum and all the artifacts for generations to come.

The Museum is a great place for children to come and learn with plenty to see, either as part of a group or a self-guided tour. To help them have even more fun whilst they learn, this year we are delighted to be introducing our very own Activity Booklet, which they can fill out as the go around the Museum. In it we have Word-searches, Mazes and Scavenger hunts to choose from. So be sure to get a copy from our main entrance on the way in, or download the activity book above. Alternately simply bring a sketch book along and really let their creative imagination fly.

Whether you want to take advantage of a guided educational tour given by one of our expert volunteers, or bring your school or group on a self-guided visit, our aim is to make booking and visiting us as easy as possible.

Booking ahead is the best way to ensure we have a special tour guide ready for when your group arrives. We ask that you give us a minimum of 10 days notice, even if you are planning a self-guided tour.
