This is a great place to take your family; young or old, to observe the historic records of the aircraft on display and the people who piloted them during battle in the World Wars or during the transportation of people or goods across our country.

They do have some interesting planes and replicas on display here. Most are inside but a handful are outside. The staff are friendly and helpful. It takes less than an hour to walk around and see all the airplanes and the few displays around the outside wall of the hangar. We even got a tour of the restoration hangar next... More

This is a fantastic place for aviation and history buffs! To be honest I am not one or the other but I really enjoyed seeing all these cool vintage planes. They have videos to watch and inter-active games.. Definitely worth a stop in!

Great little aviation museum in an historic building. Like so many of these museums the hard work is all done by volunteers who have put together a great series of exhibits.

The museum is very informative and has a few early aircraft from the Canadian military, it is run by volunteers and funded privately, so expect a basic but enriching experience, get to look at aircraft closeup and experience their past

I like aviation museums and I have been to lots of them. This one, located in a large hanger near the old municipal airport, contained both common and unusual specimens. A few of the airplanes had very different sides (paint jobs or exposed structures). More modern (and common) jets were parked outside the main building. The collection included some transports...
