Two new exhibits land at RAMWC

Don’t miss our new interactive Ace Academy exhibit and our tribute to the centennial of the Royal Canadian Air Force.

100 years of the RCAF

On March 20, 2024, we welcomed veterans, personnel from 17 Wing Winnipeg, cadets, and special guests for the opening of an exhibit commemorating 100 years of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).

Through a series of informational banners, visitors can learn about some of the many trailblazing and heroic achievements of RCAF members.

Also on display is an impressive collection of nearly 100 original aircraft paintings, commissioned by author Larry Milberry for an RCAF 60th anniversary book. Done by nine different Canadian artists, these paintings highlight RCAF aircraft in use between 1924 and 1984.

This is the first time these paintings have been exhibited publicly.

Ace Academy: Flight Experience

Just in time for spring break at the museum, we’re excited to announce the arrival of Ace Academy: Flight Experience.

On loan from the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, this interactive exhibit allows visitors to pilot a First World War biplane using motion sensing technology.

Move your arms up and down and tilt your body to manoeuver an airplane onscreen while dodging enemy aircraft and aligning yourself to fire.

Ace Academy: Flight Experience is wheelchair accessible.

Both of these exhibits are included with admission.
