Visitor FAQ

How long does it take to tour the Alberta Aviation Museum?

A self-guided tour usually takes 1-2 hours for most patrons.

 

Can I take pictures in the museum?

Yes, we encourage the photography of our collection as long as patrons remain outside of the museum exhibit barriers.

Professional photography sessions such as wedding/engagement shoots, film productions, commercial and close-up photography MUST be booked in advance.  Click Here for more information on booking photography and filming sessions at the museum.

 

Can we sit in any of the aircraft?

Due to the fragility of our historical artifacts, most access into our aircraft is closed to the public.  However, we do allow scheduled, supervised access during our annual Open Cockpit Day (Fall 2021) and throughout the year as a benefit of Museum Membership. (Starting 2021)

Once Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted, patrons can have access to the fuselage of our resident Beechcraft Expeditor 3NM (Model 18).  Stay tuned to our website for updates.
