The museum has a vast variety of artifacts and memorabilia, restored military and civil aircraft, and technology from old aircraft simulators and engines. For the aviation enthusiast, there’s also a library on-site.
A New Online Visitor Experience
The Montreal Aviation Museum is a non-profit organization, working on technical upgrades and planning new visitor experiences for their collection of exhibits.
Most recently, the museum has launched a new virtual tour of their museum, available on its website.
Online visitors can take a 360-degree virtual tour of an extensive art gallery filled with aviation art by Canadian artists and artifacts ranging from aircraft models to an original flight suit of famous Snowbird, Lt.-Col. Maryse Carmichael.
Afterwards, you can visit the engine room, which houses original aircraft which includes a replica of a 100-year-old Blériot XI Scarabée from 1909 to a Bristol Bolingbroke Mk IV from World War II! The designers of the tour allow virtual visitors to view aircraft from an aerial view to see within the cockpits.
While this virtual tour isn’t the same as seeing their spectacular collection of historic planes in person, it allows for a little taste of what you can experience when visiting.
