Our Vision, Mission, Mandate and Core Values

Whether you are an aircraft or aviation history enthusiast, on a group or school tour, or simply looking for somewhere to enjoy a day out with the family we have something for everyone.

The Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum offers a fun and exciting place to visit for the whole family – and best of all admission is free. But if you really enjoy your visit all we ask is that you kindly leave us a small donation to continue the upkeep of the Museum for everyone.

This year we have even more artifacts and aircraft on display than ever before and we are continually working on restoration projects behind the scenes that we hope to have on display for everyone to enjoy in the future.

So why not make this year the year you learn more about Atlantic Canada’s aviation history and how the Museum plays its part in being the only Museum in Canada devoted to preserving all aspects of Atlantic Canada’s aviation heritage – not to mention the fact that the Museum is currently the most comprehensive civilian and military aviation Museum east of Ottawa, Ontario!


To be Atlantic Canada’s leading aviation museum, a regional centre of excellence that inspires dreams of flight for present and future generations.
