    This Manitoba Day we are having a special sneak peek of an upcoming exhibit as a special birthday “gift” to our valued visitors. This full-scale exhibit will celebrate Canadian aviation focusing on James A. Richardson, a proud Manitoban and considered to be the “Father of Commercial Aviation in Canada.” His story spans our great country and you will be drawn into it with a full account of his venture and adventure.

    The exhibit will open to the public at a later date, but join us Friday, May 12, 2017 for the sneak peak and coffee and cookies from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. Regular admission rates apply, but if you want to get in on the best value-for-money deal, purchase a membership and you will get free admission for 12 months of the year, on any day, and to any event the museum offers. See you then!
