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...

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
