Birthdays at the Aero Space Museum

Kids + Planes = True Love 4 Ever. That’s why parties at the Aero Space Museum of Calgary rock.


My kids are 1 and 3, and they both loved the Museum. The older your kids are, the more they will get out of the experience – there are some videos and interactive displays that they will love.

Young children will need closer supervision, as there are several artefacts that should not be touched.


$95 for up to 15 guests.


Admission to the Museum and use of the Lancaster Room for two hours. This room has tables and chairs, and you will get access to a fridge and prep counter for food.

Optional: the Aero Space Museum Gift Shop can provide loot bags. I recommend this, as the Gift Shop had a LOT of awesome stuff.


Okay, you don’t have to yell! I really loved this place. There are two levels in the main building – the bottom level has most of the aircraft, exhibits and scale models. Upstairs, you will find propellers and nose art.

There is also a giant tent-ish building outside. Do NOT miss it – it houses the truly enormous aircraft, and my favourite nose art (the Lady Orchid features a lady wearing very strategically placed maple leaves).

I was there with two toddlers, so I did not have the opportunity to read ANY signs. I have zero technical information, but here’s what I know:

  • The planes are cool.
  • You can climb up steps and look inside a bunch of the planes.

  • There is a little helicopter ride – BRING LOONIES.
  • There are some hilarious photo ops.

  • There is some non-plane stuff from the Canadian Space Agency and the Western Canadian Robotics Society. Older kids will love these parts, too.


I will totally book a party at the Aero Space Museum of Calgary. My kids loved it, and there were lots of great photo ops. It’s a fantastic museum with lots of opportunities for interaction. Highly recommended!
