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.

A great place to go with the family. See all the old aircraft that flew the Canadian Arctic on mercy missions and resupply trips. Fly the simulator, see inside a jet engine and much more. A great place to visit with the whole family.

We visited the museum as part of a group tour. It is a great aviation museum with some great and famous airplanes.

The displays are inside and outside... More
