Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada, Winnipeg

4.6
#4 of 25 in Museums in Winnipeg
Visit the second-largest aviation museum in the country at Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada, a collection housed in an original Trans-Canada Air Lines hangar. Keep your eyes peeled for Canada's first helicopter, hidden among the displays of historic military jets, bush planes, and commercial aircraft. Although the aircraft themselves are fascinating, you can get just as much from a visit to the aviation reference library. In addition to photographs, drawings, and audiotapes, its collection features a rare five-minute video clip of Amelia Earhart embarking on her trans-Atlantic flight. Finish off your visit by watching landings and takeoffs from the fully enclosed flight deck. Put Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada into our Winnipeg route planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Winnipeg.
