The National Air Force Museum of Canada (NAFMC) believes everyone should have access to our country’s Air Force history. There is no admission charge to visit the museum. However, the daily operations of the Museum depend on your generous donations and patronage.

Originally founded in 1984 as the RCAF Memorial Library and Museum, the National Air Force Museum of Canada (NAFMC) has developed and expanded to where it now enjoys a national reputation, the largest number of aircraft on static display and the most skilled team of restoration volunteers of any military museum in the country.

Relocated in 1994 to the former curling rink on RCAF Rd, 8 Wing/Canadian Forces Base Trenton, the museum presents more than 3,500 artifacts and memorabilia depicting major historical events, notable aviation achievements, as well as the social history of Canada’s Air Force.

Two subsequent building expansions, the Rotary Restoration Shop in 1996 and in 2005, an additional 7,000 m2 of display space, evolved around the acquisition and restoration of one of the most versatile bombers of the Second World War, the Handley Page Halifax.
