Background SpacerNo. 6 RCAF Dunnville Museum

The museum was opened with an aim to preserve the history of the No. 6 Service Flying Training School. The airport in Dunnville, of 28 constructed across Canada, is one of the few remaining bases from the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP). Its preservation ensures that future generations can learn how the BCATP contributed towards the freedom we all enjoy today.

The museum is dedicated to the more than 2,500 men and women who served at the school from 1940-1944. Uniforms, pictures, memorabilia and artifacts of this era are displayed in the museum. There are also a North American Yale, Harvard and DeHavilland Tiger Moth on display in the hangar.

On July 4th, 2004, a Harvard memorial and gardens were dedicated to the memory of the 47 airmen who lost their lives while training at the No. 6 SFTS in Dunnville.  Museum members volunteered many hours to reconstruct the Harvard from parts and to design and build the gardens.

The museum is open weekends and holidays from Victoria Day weekend to Labour Day weekend.
Saturday 10:00am to 5:00pm, Sunday 1:00pm to 5:00pm, and Remembrance Day 1:00pm to 4:00pm.  Weekday, school and group tours can be arranged.
