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...

I only had time for a very quick visit to this museum. I thoroughly enjoyed walking around the exhibits and I could have spent many more hours looking at everything. The museum takes you from the very early pioneering days of Alberta and Canadian aviation through to the post-war era. Dozens of aircraft and displays. The staff are very knowledgeable... More

There are many things to see here. As a kid, I used to play this helicopter game at the international airport. That game is now at this museum and it still works most days. This is a place that the curators have a lot of pride in maintaining,

This museum deserves our support. It logs our aviation past. It is situated next to the doomed City Centre Airport, where Lancaster bombers used to cross the airport fence in WWII. Nearby was the Edmonton Flying Club, where thousands of pilots trained in WWII, using the West Practice Area where I also learned to fly. This museum is a treasure.... More

This is a relatively small aircraft museum based in the grounds of the old Edmonton City Airport. I'm not sure if they will be there for much longer as the airport itself is now closed completely. About 30 planes of various ages from recreations of early century models up to quite modern business jets. Some are housed outside so in... More

There is so much to see, read about, and hear about from the tour guides. The wide variety of planes on site are made with different materials and shapes; lots to see and learn about here if you love airplanes.

WOW I love airplanes and the whole world of aviation. Spent all day there. Staff and volunteers were friendly and helpful. Full of resources and stories. Fun filled day for the whole family. I would highly recommend for any aviation buff or not. Plenty of shopping in the gift store.

Beautiful place to visit!! A lot of old aircraft and many displays to fill in your time. Three of us went and really enjoyed it!! If your an aviation buff, you'll enjoy this Museum!! It's a shame they are closing down the Center City Airport right next to it for development in November of 2013!!
