The Hangar Flight Museum is now open 6 days a week from 10am-4pm, we will be closed on Mondays. Thank you for your support throughout this last year and into the future. 

 

WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 21, 2021:

The City of Calgary has mandated that all museums in Calgary opt into Alberta's vaccine passport program. The details of how we are following this bylaw are below. Bylaw 65M2021


TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 20, 2021:

The Hangar Flight Museum will be taking part in the Restrictions Exemption Program for admissions or other activities at the museum. We will continue facilitating curbside pickups for our gift shop, as well as having reduced capacity in our shop. Yesterday, proof of vaccine cards became easily accessible through Alberta Health Services. In only a few moments you can save or print your vaccine records for Covid-19. 
 

Effective Tuesday September 21 we will require all visitors 12 and over to provide one of the following:

PROOF OF VACCINATION

Full vaccination, or proof of single-dose (up until October 25), will be accepted as long as the dose was given more than two weeks prior to your visit.

PROOF OF PRIVATELY-PAID NEGATIVE RAPID TEST

Proof of a negative rapid test will be accepted. The test must have been completed within 72 hours prior to your visit. Tests must be from a private test provider and not from Alberta Health Services or Alberta Precision Laboratories.

PROOF REQUIRED FOR EVERY VISIT

Staff will be ready to greet you as you enter The Hangar, at the admissions desk. Please have your documents ready prior to entering. You will be required to show one of the above documentations each and every visit. This is in compliance with guidelines as outlined by the Government of Alberta.

PROOF OF VACCINATION DETAILS

Proof of vaccination may include a physician’s note, a pharmacy receipt, or a provincial health record verifying that the visitor has received all required doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Proof of vaccination must include the name of the individual, date(s) of the doses (to account for a single dose vaccine). ID must also be provided to match the vaccination documentation.

For the purposes of this Policy, an individual is “fully vaccinated” 14 days after their second dose of an approved 2-dose vaccine such as the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or AstraZeneca/COVID-Shield vaccines, or a single dose of an approved single-dose vaccine such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. An individual who has received an approved combination of COVID-19 vaccines is also considered fully vaccinated under this Policy.

Falsifying vaccine information will result in denied entry.

FAILURE TO PROVIDE PROOF OF VACCINATION

Visitors who do not provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test will not be granted access to the Main Hangar or Tent Hangar.

OTHER EXEMPTIONS

Visitors who were born in 2010 onward are exempt from this Policy.

ADDITIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH MEASURES

Subject to any lawful exemptions, all visitors will be required to continue to comply with all other applicable health and safety measures to reduce the hazard of COVID-19, including but not limited to, wearing a mask and maintaining physical distancing.

Thank you for your attention and compliance with all of the above protocols and policies. We appreciate your support to maintain the health and safety of our visitors.

Our staff and volunteers will also be following the above public health measures. 

Respectful and kind treatment of all staff and volunteers is expected.

  4. When you arrive at the Museum we will go through a quick health checklist to ensure that you're not currently displaying symptoms that would make it unsafe for you to visit. All staff are also undergoing checklists at the beginning of their shifts.

We wish you and your families a safe and healthy holiday season and look forward to reopening in 2021.

WEDNESDAY JUNE 3, 2020 (edited July 29, 2020):

Reopening this week

The Hangar Flight Museum has begun the process of reopening slowly. Our online ticketing system is now taking bookings. We are taking many steps to help keep your safety as a top priority. 

Here are some of the precautions we have in place. 

  1.  As of August 1, 2020 as a public facility in the City of Calgary it is mandated for visitors over the age of 2 to wear masks (Bylaw 26M2020). Staff will also be wearing masks. 
  2. We will require all visitors to use hand sanitizer when they enter the building. It will be available in a few locations throughout our space. 
  3. We are setting up one-directional traffic so that no one has to pass each other at close pinch points. We're keeping the traffic indicators on theme with arrivals and departures signs! Don't forget, we are a museum with altitude! 
  4. When you arrive at the Museum we will go through a quick health checklist to ensure that you're not currently displaying symptoms that would make it unsafe for you to visit. All staff are also undergoing checklists at the beginning of their shifts. 
  5. Our new maximum capacity is 24 visitors. This gives each visitor a 10 metre squared space allotment. To ensure that we are not going above that capacity, and to further reduce touch points at the Museum, tickets will be available online only at this time. You will be purchasing tickets for a specific arrival time on a specific date. 
  6. We recommend that you plan your museum visit around not using our public washrooms - though they will be available if you need them. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our safety precautions. info@thehangarmuseum.ca

Reopening plans

The Hangar Flight Museum is currently working on getting timed ticketing up and running as well as one-way flow pathways through the museum with the intention to open on June 5, 2020. Our current plans for a slow return to full operations will see the museum open on Fridays and Saturdays with online ticket purchasing only. We will be adding more operational days as we are able. Please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for updates and for ticket purchasing coming soon. We are looking forward to having visitors at the museum again soon - our airplanes have been quite lonely without you! 


WEDNESDAY APRIL 8, 2020:

 As you may have seen in the news recently, Mayor Nenshi made the difficult decision to restrict public events from taking place during the month of June 2020. In accordance, this means that our annual Father's Day weekend event will not be able to occur in June this year. We will provide more information about upcoming events when we can. 


MONDAY MARCH 16, 2020:

Effective Monday March 16 at 10:00am The Hangar Flight Museum will be closed to the public until further notice. In alignment with the City of Calgary and following guidelines from Alberta Health Services we are keeping the health and safety of our employees, visitors, and volunteers a top priority. 

We will do our best to contact those impacted as needed and will continue to stay current on developments as Alberta Health Services provides them. Please watch our website and social media channels for updates and we will deliver a reopening strategy when the appropriate time comes. 

We truly appreciate your support during this difficult time. Any donations made to our general operations would be sincerely appreciated to ensure that we can continue to care for our artifacts. 


FRIDAY MARCH 13, 2020:

With growing global concerns around COVID-19, The Hangar Flight Museum would like to update our visitors and guests on measures we’re taking to help to keep our community safe during this time. 

We are actively monitoring the situation and following all updates and advice provided by Alberta Health Services and the Public Health Agency of Canada. We have increased cleaning and disinfecting protocols throughout the Museum focusing on high traffic and high contact areas such as doorknobs, light switches, railings, countertops, and programming materials. At this time, no staff or volunteers of the museum are showing symptoms of COVID-19. If this changes and any staff or volunteers begin to display symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing, or that have travelled outside Canada, or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, they are required to self-isolate for 14 days.

 

Based on the current information provided by Alberta Health Services, and the Public Health Agency of Canada, the risk to all Canadians remains low. The Museum is currently open to the public, as well as any programs in operation including school programs and sleepovers are going forward as planned until Alberta Health Services and the Public Health Agency of Canada advise us to close.  

We will continue to monitor the situation and follow recommendations from health officials in the coming days and weeks and will keep a current update of our situation available on our website.

 

We thank you for your continued support of The Hangar Flight Museum
