Attraction details
Owner description: Renovated in the spring of 2012, the Museum’s collection focuses on North Atlantic aviation history as it pertains to Gander and Gander International Airport, from the 1930’s through to present day, with the bulk of the artifacts, photos, and text focusing on the WWII years through the early jet age. Highlights of our collection: We have several WWII aircraft engines, a restored WWII DeHavilland Tiger Moth bi-plane, a WWII Lockheed Hudson MkIIIA mid-range bomber (which we are told is one of only 8 left in the world, and is the only one in North America), a 1950’s CF101 Voodoo jet, a 1930’s Beech 18-S, and a 1940’s Canso PBY-5A waterbomber. Of special interest, above the main entry we have positioned the tail section of a DC-3 (1930’s model), and out the back of the building, overlooking beautiful Gander Lake, is the cockpit of the DC-3, which visitors can enter from inside the building.

It took me about 20 minutes to go through this museum- and I have an interest in aviation. Consider the limited displays versus the admission price. There are some interesting facts about Gander's aviation history, but consider this more as a break from driving rather than a destination.

This museum is right on the side of the highway. Do not turn into the town of Gander or go to the airport looking for it. Better signage is needed to direct tourists to this museum.

“Great attraction for all ages”

The aviation museum details aviation history and it's importance in the development of our airport and town. Gander was created around the airport as a economic force and as technology changed, so did our airport's role. September 11 displays are also great.
