The experience begins the moment you and your guests arrive at our fabulous facility where nostalgia fills the air and the museum's extraordinary collection of vintage aircraft set the stage. There is just nothing like it.

Planning a wedding takes time and an attention to detail, and our staff is here to assist! We will help you make your vision a reality, and we will do it with patience and professionalism. We are a full-service facility, and we would be honoured to host your shower, reception, and wedding ceremony! We have rooms of every shape and size, all fully catered. Holding your wedding at the museum eliminates the inconveniences of maps, parking and weather because guests can attend all events at an easily accessible facility with loads of free parking, and plenty of space to spread out indoors during inclement weather. Many aircraft will be on display at all times so your guests can wander through the hangar and we always endeavor to have a tour guide available for questions or a short history lesson.

Our Facilities

Our Hangar is an ideal setting for receptions and special gatherings for up to 1400 people! Tables are set up right on our main hangar floor, surrounded by dozens of spectacular vintage aircraft. Guests are welcome to wander around the hangar during your special event to view these fabulous planes and we always endeavor to have several volunteers available on the hangar floor to answer questions about the facility and our aircraft. The hangar is fully heated and is wheelchair accessible.

The Dome is perfect for the more intimate affair. This special event room, which is located at the front of our fabulous facility, right off the Gift Shop, can accommodate up to 190 for a stand up reception or 110 for a sit down dinner. The unusual room, with it’s curved dome ceiling, has been the site for numerous movie-shoots over the past several years. Dome is fully heated and air-conditioned and is also wheelchair accessible.

We also offer smaller rooms such as our TG Room, located on the second floor at the rear of the museum. This room is lavishly furnished with numerous couches and lounge chairs overlooking the airfield and runway. The TG Room can accommodate up to 60 persons, is fully heated and air conditioned, but is not wheelchair accessible.

Located on the second floor in our administration area, is our Board Room. This room overlooks the entire hangar and our whole aircraft collection. It is furnished with upholstered conference chairs, features ceiling to floor windows, and is the perfect setting for business meetings or small gatherings. The Board Room can accommodate up to 20 persons, is fully heated and air conditioned, and is wheelchair accessible.
