We regret that we are unable to accept items that don’t fit our mandate or are a duplicate of what we already have, so please try to have as much information about the item you would like to donate before you get in contact with our team.

Businesses helping to support us

The Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum is Atlantic Canada’s only Museum devoted to preserving all aspects of Atlantic Canada’s aviation heritage. Granted ‘Local Museum’ status by the Nova Scotia Museum in 1989, it is owned and operated by local volunteers since its inception in 1978. Not to mention the fact that the Museum is currently the largest civilian and military aviation Museum east of Ottawa, Ontario!

Our collections tell stories of immense technological leaps in aviation and of ordinary people doing extraordinary things in times of national crisis.

The Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum attracts around 4,000 visitors per year, our programme of exhibitions and events offers a range of things for everyone to discover and enjoy.
