What to See and Do

2018 is the Year of Space

Grab your sense of adventure and gear up for a year of out-of-this-world activities at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum!

In late 2018, Canadian Astronaut David Saint-Jacques will launch towards the International Space Station (ISS) and spend six months orbiting the Earth. As part of Expeditions 58 and 59, Saint-Jacques will participate in active research and help maintain the ISS. He’ll also connect with Canadians and classrooms back on Earth – to share his incredible journey of space exploration.

Here at the museum, we’re celebrating Saint-Jacques’ mission with a variety of exhibitions, events, and public programming throughout the year. Whether you’re a newbie or a space expert, we have something new for you to try – and we’ll be adding more events to the calendar throughout the year.
