Overview

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.

For those interested in aviation it's an interesting stop. I'm not but still found it well put together so that I did learn something. There's lots of information and history. Of course the 9/11 corner is emotional and informative for people who didn't know what...More

Very small but interesting aviation museum. Gander has a lot of interesting history to share about its aviation past. Displays were good. 9/11 information very moving.

Gander is here because of aviation so a visit here explains the origins & also recent history i.e. Gander's role on 911.
