Library and Archives

Find out more about Canadian aviation—from the pioneer era to the jet-age—at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum Library and Archives.

Housing the finest collection of its kind in Canada, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum Library and Archives is dedicated to fostering an understanding of the role aviation played in the history of Canada. As well, it serves to highlight Canada’s exceptional contributions to the development of aviation worldwide.

Set up originally to meet the needs of museum staff researching exhibits and restoration projects, the Library and Archives has become a busy research centre for historians and aviation enthusiasts from across Canada and around the world. We invite you to seek out information on all types of flying machines, engines, aviation personalities, and company histories—whether it’s for an article or book, a school assignment, or a personal interest.
