Celebrating Civil Aviation’s Past, Present and Future

Visit ICAO – the Museum and Guided Tours


ICAO encourages visitors! The "Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu" ICAO Museum can be visited without a reservation during its regular opening hours. We also provide group tours of our headquarters. These must be reserved in advance. All visitor services are provided free of charge.


The “Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu” ICAO Museum


Our museum was established and opened by fifth ICAO Council President Dr. Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu as part of the 2014 celebrations of the 70th Anniversary of the Chicago Convention. It is intended to inform and inspire interest in all areas of civil aviation and highlight the unique contributions of global air transport to the peace and prosperity of all nations and peoples of the world.


It is open Tuesdays through Fridays, from 12:30 to -16:30. It will be closed on all statutory holidays, and from 24 December to 7 January, inclusive.


All visitors will be required to be processed through building security prior to gaining admittance.


The Museum App


You can take a tour of the ICAO Museum right on your mobile device by downloading the iOS or Android app. It includes voiceover content you can listen to while you visit (via headphones only).


Guided Group Tours


Guided group tours of ICAO’s diplomatic chambers, gifted artwork, and model aircraft collection are available in English and French by advance reservation, on a first-come, first-served basis. Group tours must include at least 5 persons over the age of 16 and may not exceed 25 participants. Individuals are not permitted to join
previously scheduled tours.

Group tours are generally scheduled on but not restricted to Thursdays at 12:30pm pending availability. Each tour typically encompasses the ICAO Assembly Hall, Council Chamber, and Air Navigation Chamber, before concluding at 2 pm.

ICAO will consider exceptional requests for tours outside these hours. Tours may be cancelled or amended at any time in light of diplomatic requirements.

All participants must undergo security screening (metal detection and X-ray) and present identification issued by an ICAO member State. Participants must remain with the tour group at all times during the visit.
