Planning a Visit to the BC Aviation Museum
Hours - Summer May 1 to September 30 - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm: Winter October 1 to April 30 - 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.
The British Columbia Aviation Museum is a major attraction on Vancouver Island. It is located next to Victoria International Airport, on the south-east corner of the airport lands (see directions). In our Museum, there are many interesting aircraft, engines, pictures, models and artefacts.
We have civilian and commercial aircraft, as well as military aircraft, all of which made contributions to British Columbia's aviation history.
Be sure to visit our Memorial Room, where you will find many artefacts from the wars in which Canadians fought as members of the Royal Flying Corps, Royal Air Force, or Royal Canadian Air Force. The Memorial Room also includes an historical display of RCAF Station Patricia Bay, as it was during its time as a Commonwealth Air Training Plan Centre, complete with models of all the aircraft that were stationed there during those years.
There are many historic places of interest in the Greater Victoria area, which makes this an ideal vacation destination. Along with other local museum organizations, the British Columbia Aviation Museum works with local agencies to present British Columbia’s rich transportation history.
