General Tours

The aircraft and exhibits in the Canada Aviation and Space Museum are arranged to guide a visitor along a “Walkway of Time” that traces the history of aviation and highlights Canada’s contributions. There are many ways of discovering this unique collection but the most popular is, without a doubt, a general guided tour.
