Alberta Aviation Museum

11410 Kingsway NW, Edmonton
780 451 1175

Adults $12, Youth (13 – 17) $8.50, Children (6 – 12) $7.50, under 6 Free

Explore Alberta’s aviation history including actual airplanes, displays of air force uniforms, maps, and other history.

The museum started 25 years ago, when a group of aviation buffs convinced Edmonton City Council to let them use the historic Blatchford hangar on Kingsway.

It’s the last remaining double-long, double-wide hangar from the World War II era and is a protected historic resource.

Over the years, hundreds of dedicated volunteers have worked on our iconic collection of more than 20 aircraft, including many ground-up restorations.

With the closure of the airport, the museum moves into a new phase, becoming the historic cornerstone of the new Blatchford community. We are also embarking on a major revitalization to better tell Edmonton’s exciting flying history to a whole new generation.
