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.

This is a quick stop right off the highway. They have four planes on display outside and several displays inside including one on 9-11 when 42 planes were ordered to land in Gander. Admission is reasonable and there is a small gift shop. Worth the...More

Not a giant museum, but had several cool exhibits and lots of interesting facts about the aviation history of the area. Worth 30 minutes maybe more if you want to stroll around and check out the planes outside.

I've been at this museum a couple of times now and find it fascinating every time. Every item has a story and there are lots of items.

Well laid out exhibits and good presentation. Hands-on exhibits were un-expected. I didn't have as much time as I would have liked. I guess I'll have to go back.

The North Atlantic Aviation Museum has been open for a number of years, with a small, but well done exhibit of Gander's place in the aviation world. From the highway you can see the tail of a DC-3 protruding from the front of the building...More

I really enjoyed visiting this museum because of the memorabilia from 9/11. There are so many touching letters and other reminders of Gander's role during that horrible event.

It was interesting but limited in static displays - mostly outside. Good to learn of the history of Gander during the early days of transatlantic flight and World War 2,

The museum is small, but since it has been renovated in 2012 the setup of the exhibition makes it pleasant to walk thru, because it is not too full. They did some great displays on the 2 big plane crashes that happened in the Gander...More
