Two New Space Exhibits Open at Winnipeg Aviation Museum

WINNIPEG — Two new travelling space exhibits have opened at the Western Canada Aviation Museum.

“Revolutions: A Space Art Exhibit” includes artwork and sculptures from over a dozen space artists known internationally for their work in museums, corporations and private collections.

“Canada’s 50 Years in Space” looks at the milestones of Canada’s history in space since 1962. A large collection of images and memorabilia range from unique pictures to the country’s early satellites and the Canadarm to brave astronauts like Chris Hadfield and Julie Payette.

The exhibits also include two workshops aimed at children ages five to 14 and two workshops aimed at adults, hobbyists and teachers. The workshops will be held Saturdays at the museum and be led by experts from the local chapter of the Canadian Space Society.

Both exhibits run until March 21, 2015. For the museum’s hours and more upcoming events, visit
