Western Canada Aviation Museum, Winnipeg Reviews

  • Had some time to kill before my flight from Winnipeg so i decided to stop by here beforehand. This is a wonderful museum for people of all ages interested in Canada's aviation history. It's not an enormous place so you can get through it in about an hour or 2 depending on your interest level. They have all kinds of exhibits from bush planes to fighters to the centerpiece Vickers Viscount which you may board (Spoiler - there was much more leg room back then!) The folks who volunteer at this museum are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable as well, they are happy to answer your questions! When i went to leave, I underestimated the walking distance between the museum and the terminal and a gentleman named Norm was so incredibly kind enough to give me a ride. Thanks again!

  • A great museum. Visited once before when they had a rare, working Wellington bomber here to visit. Came with my son and nephew this time during spring break. They’re both 6. Both the boys and I had a great time running around and looking at all the awesome planes and stuff and flipping switches and turning dials and sitting on the Air Canada passenger plane. It was all great fun. They especially loved the touchable control panels and paper airplane lessons.

  • Excellent place for all ages. Especially if you like planes and history. You can have birthdays there too.

  • Very interesting! Lots of airplanes and history packed into the hangers. It should be even better when they get the new location up and running. Love it when they bring in the old but still flyable planes for special events. They do need to advertise those better. Too often you hear about it after the fact.

  • The new building will be amazing. Over half way there in fund raising. Go visit to help raise money. This is a good once a year visit for the family.
