On the plus side, the interior of this volunteer driven facility is awesome considering. A Lancaster was removed from a pedestal and wheeled to the Museum, where it has now received a new coat of paint and looks splendid. The esoteric mix of military and non military craft is exactly what you would expect and their shop is compact and... More

Took visitors with kids there for the first time the kids loved the experience everything to them was "It's big" standing and looking up at the planes and helicopters. When we left their response was "when can we come back"

Lovely museum to wander around with the family for reasonable entry costs. Plenty of room to look at the exhibits in the first building and lots of airline seats to try and it was interesting to note that some had ashtrays in the arms. The main reason for our visit was to look at the Lancaster Bomber and we were... More

I have booked my daughter's bday here. The day itself was marvelous but the preparations were not that good because there were so much donts from the event head. It is a good thing that my friends helped me do the preps and decoration. I would suggest that if you will your event in here, you are fine with 2... More

One of the first places I went when I moved to Calgary. Went there with 3 other adults. The exhibits were neat and there is lots to see. I think most people would enjoy it regardless as to whether you are interested in aeroplanes or not.

I don't think this museum gets the exposure it should. It is not the biggest aerospace museum in the world but it has some very unique exhibits. Lots of room to roam, things that will interest your entire family.

The museum is an interesting place as long as you have time to walk slowly , enjoy the aircraft, and read all the display boards. There are two buildings to explore. The main building has The gift shop, the display area and the washrooms. The entrance and washrooms have ramps for access. The second building has the larger aircraft and... More
