I've never been in an aviation museum before, the experience was great, we took a bus to get there and we had to walk for 10 minutes but it was cool, they have spectacular planes and some of them you can touch or get inside, some of the planes are really old and there are small rooms dedicated to the...

If you are into aviation you will love this place. Even if you don't you will enjoy it (there was 3 adults and 3 kids with me that's not aviation buffs and all enjoyed the trip). The staff are very friendly and helpful and the kids will enjoy a seat in the Sabre (wish I was a kid on my... More

If you have any interest in Canadian aviation history this is the place. It records flight by man from Leonardo DaVincci sketches, the Wright Bros. , WW1,WW2, Bush planes and pilots up to modern times. Not a boring old museum !! Interactive displays and simulators. Great for all ages. Easy to get to and very well priced. Try it !!!!

We toured through this duringa recent visit to Edmonton. I believe the price is only 10 dollars per person which is very reasonable considering how many planes they have in the museum. There is a wide variety from many generations and is definitely worth a look if you enjoy aviation or military history. Very cool

There are many airplanes of the past here, including some famous (at least, famous in Alberta). They were well marked, and it was fun to read about them and look at the airplanes. There were a few interactive things too - our daughter couldn't get the flight simulators to work, but we all enjoyed going into one of the 5... More

This museum takes us back to World War II with displays and actual photos of the men and women who served our county. Great place for children to see and learn

This place is run by volunteers, and it shows. There are some beautifully restored aircraft spanning the whole history of aviation, which will delight real enthusiasts. But for families, there's not much going on, most of the exhibits are 'do not touch', we couldn't find any refreshments, and its a little dark and dusty. Its very cheap to get in,... More

Part of the museum was closed due renovation. It is good hangout if you want to bring along kids. It is funded by the ticket sale and private contributions, and it shows the struggle to survive.

I didn't think I would be interested, but this place turned out to have a lot of really interesting exhibits and displays! You can get up close with all of the displays, and they have a huge variety of aircraft and other items, including jets outside. The gift shop was nice too! It would recommend this as a great stop...
