Pleasantly surprised at the displays here. Very humbling to see gun turrets and the size of the cockpits these pilots had to function in. They even had an F-86 Sabre there. Really makes me want to take the kids to some of the bigger aero museums when they get older.

I've expected something better, but interesting enough to pay it a visit, especially in a city sure not full of turists' attractions. Enjoyable. Maybe not a big choice in the souvenirs' shop, but enjoyable.

Enjoyed our time here. Felt that we were able to learn a lot about Canada's aviation history. Wouldn't have spent a long time here but it was enjoyable. Had a groupon for it so it was a cheap option for a quick trip

Aerospace museum is full of history and great time for everyone and for all ages! There is an admission fee but it is worth your money. The planes have been restored by thousands of hours from volunteers!!! It was amazing, interesting and fun. Apparently, if you visit the museum like Father's day or any holiday, you get an opportunity to... More

I've lived in Calgary for over 12 years and I drove by this museum a thousand times (if not more) and never found the time to stop and check it out. Well I'm glad I did. I've been to many large Aero-Space museums across the world, and this one was still very interesting, with many uniquely Canadian planes; such as... More

The museum has 2 hangars that includes expositions. First, entrance building has 2 level expositions if you can call the second level really "level". It is sort of balcony that runs along side of the walls. Exhibition includes artifacts as well as ability of picking through the window inside the aircraft. Fighter jet and gunners no doubt are impressive part... More
