BRITISH COLUMBIA AVIATION MUSEUM

Attention all Aviation Enthusiasts!

The British Columbia Aviation Museum is a major attraction on Vancouver Island, located next to the Victoria International Airport at 1910 Norseman Rd in Sidney.   There are many interesting aircraft, engines, pictures, models and artifacts. In the Memorial Room you will find many artifacts from the wars that Canadians fought, either as members of the Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal Flying Corps, or Royal Air Force. They also have a historical display of the Pat Bay Airport as it was during its time as a Commonwealth Air Training Centre, complete with models of all the aircraft that were stationed here during those years. Be sure to visit the gift shop.
