You can’t miss the giant fighter plane parked outside this obscure Edmonton museum operated by the Edmonton Aviation Heritage Society. The 70-year-old hangar that houses relics of aviation history is both a Provincial Historic Site and an Edmonton Municipal Heritage Site and home to more than three dozen restored aircraft dating back almost 100 years. Try out the multi-screen flight simulators or take a look at the collection of Nazi memorabilia on display. You can stand right next to the Vickers Viking IV, the first amphibian aircraft to be used in Canada, or view the late Katherine Stinson’s 92-year-old Curtiss Stinson Special used for airmail delivery in western Canada. As an added bonus, guests can watch planes take off and land at the City Centre Airport across the way.
