More than 10 500 visitors
This year, the Air Defense Museum presented for the first time an original exhibition on the history of Canadian aviation as seen through art.
Entitled "Military Art: The Great War of Today", this exhibition created by the museum team allowed visitors to learn more about the work of Canadian artists who represented the glory of soldiers and human tragedies during the two world wars, but also during the other conflicts of this century. This exhibition was added to those already present: Masters of the Sky and State of Alert. Although attendance did not start out heavy this season, the number of visitors still climbed to 10,500 by the end of the season, despite the loss of visibility caused by the opening of the new highway in the spring. More than 800 foreign visitors experienced and saw CFB Bagotville thanks to Fall cruisers, a record for the museum.
