The Bomber Command Museum welcomes visits by a variety of groups. Our museum’s aircraft and related artifacts, aviation art, and interpretive displays are of interest to visitors of all ages.

Please keep in mind that our museum is a volunteer operated, non-government facility that relies on admission charges, donations, and gift shop sales for our operations.

Many combine tours of our museum with visits to Fort Macleod, the Bar U National Historic Site, the Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump Interpretive Centre, the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, and to the Museum of Miniatures in Nanton.

  • guided tours (optional)
