The Atlantic Canada Aviation Museum is an aerospace museum located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada near the Halifax Stanfield International Airport.


The museum was established in 1977 by a group of volunteers. It opened to the public in 1985 and was granted "Local Museum" status by the Government of Nova Scotia in 1989. A 14,000 square foot hangar was built in 1995. In 1997, the museum recovered a TBM Avenger that crashed on while performing aerial spraying in 1975.


The museum features a number of exhibits that include CP-107 and Link trainers, a model of Halifax Civic Airport, and an original V-1 flying bomb. A flight simulator based on a Boeing 737NG was installed in July 2023.
