Bomber Command Museum of  Canada

The Bomber Command Museum is the only facility in Canada whose primary goal
is to honour those who served with Bomber Command.

This wonderful book produced by the Commonwealth Air Training Plan in Brandon, Manitoba
lists the names and a brief biography of over 17,000 Canadians
who were killed in the air war during World War II.

Since the Society was incorporated in 1986, funding has been arranged for the construction and expansion of what is now a 37,000 square foot museum building which provides permanent shelter for our Lancaster Bomber and other aircraft, artifacts, library, archives, and displays. As well, the building includes extensive restoration shops and parts storage areas. Aircraft, vehicles, instrumentation, artifacts, tools, books, manuals, photographs, aviation art, and other display materials have been acquired or donated by numerous supporters.

This has been accomplished through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and donations made by thousands of individuals and dozens of corporations. None of the cost of acquiring artifacts or developing displays has been taxpayer supported.

Although much has been accomplished, development and expansion of our museum, displays, and programs continues.
