While not a very large number of displays, there are enough "cool planes" for a couple hours with the kids. We were there with our boys (10 & 13) for a a couple of hours, looking at all the planes, watching the videos and reading the stories. There are a couple of "simulators" our boys just love. The volunteers on... More

Remembrance of a time when could fly some of these if you had ( have) a pilots license. Or remembering the good old days when Edmonton had a local airport. Batchford field.

This museum won't take all day. It is great for a morning or hot afternoon. The planes are in impeccable shape! The staff are very friendly. The price is a little high but worth it. I am an aviation enthusiast and a pilot, so I love this stuff. Anyone who enjoys planes or children that have the fascination should go.

There is a lot of aviation history tucked into this WW 2 era hanger, Both civil and military aviation are featured. The collection includes the first Canadair Sabre, a B-25, DeHaviland Vampire, CF-100, CT-133 Silver Star CF-101 Voodoo, Cf-104 Starfire, and a wealth of Canadian Bush planes. Other displays chronicle civil aviation, Bush Pilots etc. A "not to be missed"... More

If you are an aviation nut or just think planes are cool, then you must stop by and have a look. Cheap admission and give yourself at least an hour to see the display.

The museum is not very large compared to similar museums, for example, in England, but it has an interesting collection of planes, both civilian and military. You can also read about their technical characteristics and history. Suitable for all ages except very young children.

My 8 year old nephew had a party to attend at the museum, instead of dropping him off I stayed. The museum was full of information and interesting exhibits. I completely enjoyed the 2 hours as would anyone interested in the history of Canadian aviation.
