Artifact & Archive Donations

Since its humble beginnings in 1978, the Shearwater Aviation Museum has literally been the recipient of tens of thousands of donated artifacts and documents that now make up its extensive collection. It is so large in fact, that only a small percentage of the full collection is able to be put on exhibit at any one time.

We do continue to accept new donations and in many cases, can issue an income tax receipt for an appraised market value of the item(s) in question.

If you believe you may have something of interest to donate to the museum to add to its collection, contact our Curator by phone at (902) 720-1083 or by e-mail at
