About The Hangar Flight Museum Calgary
The Hangar Flight Museum, formerly the Aero Space Museum of Calgary, is a busy and growing museum that fosters the understanding and appreciation of the evolution of flight through tales told about the airplanes, helicopters and machines of flight in our collections. It’s about reaching for your potential, reaching beyond your limits and soaring where you never thought possible. Surrounded by machines and stories that inspire their imagination, visitors will learn of remarkable courage and innovation.
The first aviation museum in Calgary, “The Air Museum of Canada” was founded in 1960. The Air Museum of Canada held a large collection of privately owned aircraft. The museum’s aircraft and assets were turned over to the City of Calgary and housed at the Planetarium when the museum was disbanded in 1971. The present day museum was founded in 1975 and showcases the history of aviation and space technology in Western Canada.
