Update on Covid-19

THURSDAY MAY 14, 2020: 

Reopening plans


The Hangar Flight Museum is currently working on getting timed ticketing up and running as well as one-way flow pathways through the museum with the intention to open on June 5, 2020. Our current plans for a slow return to full operations will see the museum open on Fridays and Saturdays with online ticket purchasing only. We will be adding more operational days as we are able. Please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for updates and for ticket purchasing coming soon. We are looking forward to having visitors at the museum again soon - our airplanes have been quite lonely without you! 






 As you may have seen in the news recently, Mayor Nenshi made the difficult decision to restrict public events from taking place during the month of June 2020. In accordance, this means that our annual Father's Day weekend event will not be able to occur in June this year. We will provide more information about upcoming events when we can. 




MONDAY MARCH 16, 2020:

Effective Monday March 16 at 10:00am The Hangar Flight Museum will be closed to the public until further notice. In alignment with the City of Calgary and following guidelines from Alberta Health Services we are keeping the health and safety of our employees, visitors, and volunteers a top priority. 


We will do our best to contact those impacted as needed and will continue to stay current on developments as Alberta Health Services provides them. Please watch our website and social media channels for updates and we will deliver a reopening strategy when the appropriate time comes. 



We truly appreciate your support during this difficult time. Any donations made to our general operations would be sincerely appreciated to ensure that we can continue to care for our artifacts. 




FRIDAY MARCH 13, 2020:

With growing global concerns around COVID-19, The Hangar Flight Museum would like to update our visitors and guests on measures we’re taking to help to keep our community safe during this time. 


We are actively monitoring the situation and following all updates and advice provided by Alberta Health Services and the Public Health Agency of Canada. We have increased cleaning and disinfecting protocols throughout the Museum focusing on high traffic and high contact areas such as doorknobs, light switches, railings, countertops, and programming materials. At this time, no staff or volunteers of the museum are showing symptoms of COVID-19. If this changes and any staff or volunteers begin to display symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing, or that have travelled outside Canada, or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, they are required to self-isolate for 14 days.


Based on the current information provided by Alberta Health Services, and the Public Health Agency of Canada, the risk to all Canadians remains low. The Museum is currently open to the public, as well as any programs in operation including school programs and sleepovers are going forward as planned until Alberta Health Services and the Public Health Agency of Canada advise us to close.  

We will continue to monitor the situation and follow recommendations from health officials in the coming days and weeks and will keep a current update of our situation available on our website.


We thank you for your continued support of The Hangar Flight Museum
