The Saskatchewan Aviation Museum was launched in 2007 and renovations commenced in 2017 with the official opening on May 26, 2018.
With private donations, in 2018 the Saskatchewan Aviation Museum (SAM) purchased 11,000 square feet of hangar space and began renting another 3000 square feet. The extent of the impact from the 2020-21 pandemic of 2020-2021 resulted in the museum exiting its leased street front business access and restoration hangar. The museum then consolidated its operations to its primary hangar at the rear of Hangar 5 having an alternate access gate to the museum. Our goal remains to return at some point to the original rented space 3,000.
Through donations and vintage aircraft on loan to the museum, we have collected aircraft that have shaped Saskatchewan’s and Canada’s history. This collection includes both civilian and decommissioned military aircraft from a variety of eras.
To educate visitors of the historic, economic, scientific, technical, social and cultural role aviation has played in the growth and prosperity of our province and country. Furthermore, it is the museum’s mission to collect, preserve, depict and display aeronautical artifacts significant to Saskatchewan and Canadian aviation.
To create a sustainable, operating and flight-ready living museum that stimulates and inspires all ages while entertaining visitors by providing a world-class experience that exceeds expectations.
