National Air Force Museum of Canada

Established in 1984, the National Air Force Museum of Canada is dedicated to preserving and telling the history of Canadian military aviation. The museum – with over 7,000 square metres (75,000 square feet) of exhibition space with an adjoining 6-hectare (16-acre) air park – captures the spirit, daring and courage of the men and women of the Royal Canadian Air Force.

Established in 1984, the National Air Force Museum of Canada is dedicated to preserving and telling the history of Canadian military aviation. The museum – with over 7,000 square metres (75,000 square feet) of exhibition space with an adjoining 6-hectare (16-acre) air park – captures the spirit, daring and courage of the men and women of the Royal Canadian Air Force – from the first flight on a frozen lake in Nova Scotia to today's humanitarian relief missions. While the site has reopened (check their website for COVID-19 protocols), there are still a number of excellent digital resources available for at-home visits. Start with the video below. Then check out their collections, including many aircraft, and their online exhibits, including Victory (about the end of the Second World War). The museum also features several Museum from Home activities – including a table hockey game, a colouring sheet (where you can design your own jersey to win a prize), the Be an Airman board game, and much more.
