After driving past this facility multiple times, wondering what is behind the planes on display along Kingsway, I finally went inside Hangar 14. I'm glad I did, as it provided about two hours of entertainment for a cost of $10.50. Good return. The museum is split between the civilian impacts of the airport and flight and Edmonton's air relationship with... More

Great displays illustrating how primitive planes and amenities were in the early days of aviation inclusive of war planes and personalities.

So many interesting planes and jets throughout the ages are preserved here. Definitely a way to spend a rainy day indoors, although it's too bad that they closed the city-centre airport and sent the Boeing 737-100 to another location before tearing up the runway

It's right in the city, no need to travel far, great access. I know they won't have the airshows they once did but this is still a great place to visit. By yourself, with friends, with young and old alike. You set the pace and wander, usually folks around handy to answer any questions. Surround yourself with the history of... More

Very interesting to both young and old ! Lots of aircraft from the first built to modern day army jets. Some fun interactive displays and you can even sit inside the cockpit of a couple of the aircraft . There is also a small gift shop with some unique gifts for young and old alike .

This is not a big museum. Pretty much like an indoor shelter for airplanes. I would say come check it out only if you are interested in aircrafts or Canadian history.

I have visited many air and space museums, and especially enjoyed this one. Several of the curators were there (many retired aviators) to offer fantastic historical information and helping us understand the vast amount of information/history offered. This is a fantastic museum for adults and children alike. The staff are all very helpful. The entrance fee is nominal given all... More
