Saskatchewan Aviation Museum

Established in 2007, the Saskatchewan Aviation Museum preserves and celebrates aviation history. After undergoing renovations starting in 2017, the museum officially reopened its doors on May 26, 2018.

Thanks to generous private donations, the museum expanded its footprint in 2018 by acquiring 11,000 square feet of hangar space and leasing an additional 3,000 square feet. However, the challenges posed by the 2020-21 pandemic led to the museum relinquishing its leased street front access and restoration hangar. Despite this setback, the museum consolidated its operations to its primary hangar at Hangar 5, with plans to eventually return to the original rented space of 3,000 square feet.

Driven by a passion for preserving aviation heritage, the museum has accumulated a remarkable collection of aircraft that have left an indelible mark on Saskatchewan's and Canada's history. This collection features a diverse array of both civilian and decommissioned military aircraft spanning various eras, all generously donated or on loan to the museum.
