For me, it wasn't as much my interest, other than that I like to travel so it was fun seeing all the old airline stuff. There is a flight simulator game too that was... More

Very nice museum but could do with a few more exhibits and maybe fix a few of the interactive parts for the kids. Friendly helpful volunteers and a nice little gift store with a nice variety of items but not many of their own items. Good job done with what they have available but again could do with a few...

The family went to the museum with a friend and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. The museum had great washrooms- that is always a plus! The museum entertained the 4 and 14 year old. The greeter at the front was hilarious and very friendly.

We donated aviation items to the museum and have made a point of going through at least once a year. We appreciate the uniquely Canadian aspect of the displays especially relating to northern flying. We saw lots of planes in stages of restoration. Unfortunately the museum has to relocate to Villeneuve Airport west of the city. We hope that there... More

We were in Edmonton for a couple of days and did not know what to do. We found it online and went there. It was one of the best surprises we had. We thought there were only gonna be miniature models and some history. Loved how they had both military and civilian planes. If you are ever in Edmonton and... More

A fairly large display of aviation history and very interesting. Worthwhile to take a few hours to tour the place

My husband wanted to be there as soon as it opened. Very thankful that there was a choice of a wheelchair that my husband could push me around. He would explain - about the different airplanes. I could have used the scooter, or the walker,or the wheelchair that you push on the wheels. They also have airplane strollers.

The Alberta Aviation Museum is housed in an old hangar on the old city airport, and it does a wonderful job of displaying Alberta's aviation history. The volunteers were amazing, and had so much information to share. Their passion showed, as one volunteer, noticing visitors, didn't even bother to finish his before shift coffee before coming out to talk to... More

This was a great day trip if one is a airplane or history bluff, enjoying being able to see the inside of one plane and just be able to see them up close.
