Historical Aviation Museum

Located at the North-Wright dock on DOT (Department of Transport) Lake, the historical aviation museum consists of two log buildings — one the original North-Wright base, and the other built by Canoe North Adventures as a shelter for paddlers in transit. In addition, there are also several smaller buildings on the premises once used by the four airlines that historically operated in Norman Wells — Canadian Pacific, Nahanni Air Services, Northward Air and North-Wright Airways. The buildings, and an open-air hangar for a gull-wing floatplane, are all part of a working museum designed to appeal to visitors and provide freight and cargo services.
