Saskatchewan
Aviation Museum & Learning Centre

Join Us for a BBQ Lunch every Friday 11:00am-1:00pm this summer

We exist to share the history of aviation in Saskatchewan & inspire visitors of all ages.

From the early “bush planes” to the “Yellow Wing” trainer’s of World War II, we strive to remember our aviation pioneers. Volunteers restore and conserve aircraft, document artifacts and photographs, keeping once-commonplace skills and manufacturing techniques from vanishing.

Pop by to browse the museum or book a guided tour for yourself, a group, or a class of students. Discover a wealth of history in our aircraft hangar, displays and flight simulators. The museum offers an up close and personal experience with the aircraft that have shaped Saskatchewan’s and Canada’s history, both civilian and decommissioned military aircraft from a variety of eras.
