This museum was a great surprise. The displays are numerous and excellent. The volunteer guides are very knowledgeable and eager to show visitors the most interesting details. Of course.....you have to be interested in aeroplanes and the history of flight.

Well-organized display of airplanes, clothing, instruments, etc., including small planes for small people to ride! On the edge of Victoria International Airport, where British flyers trained for action in World War II.

Having visited several aviation museums I must say that the BC Aviation Museum near my home is well worth the visit. As during previous encounters I have always been amazed by the history that all those volunteers carry with them. It's a clan of fliers,...More

A nice place to spend a morning or afternoon. Lots of rebuilt vintage aircraft and some in the process of rebuild. Always a knowlegeable person available to answer questions about the aircraft and some history of when those aircraft were used.

Having an aviation career means I'm always searching out good museums, and this one fits the bill. It's small but packed with planes & displays. We were met by a young docent who was knowledgeable but not overbearing. He showed us around the (naturally) Canadian-centric...More

Yes, but I can't remember what it was, and it is not on their website. You can call 250-655-3300 during daytime hours to find out.
Hi We would like to come with a two year old to visit the museum on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning. The little boy absolutely loves planes and would find it a dream come true to be able to sit in one. Can you let me know the hours of operation so that we don't get out there and find we are disappointed? Janet Dunnett
