Family Drop-in Program


YEG Honeycomb Family Drop-In Programs!

A new form of flight has returned to Blatchford Field and is a creating “buzz” for the museum.  The Alberta Aviation Museum is excited to serve as a partner site to host two resident bee colonies at our facility. Part of the YEG Honeycomb Project, this sustainability initiative aims to provide 12 pollinator penthouses across 6 historic locations throughout Edmonton.
