Very well laid out museum telling the story of the RCAF. The staff were also very knowledgeable and the shop sold really great memorabilia. There are some airframes about a half mile south.

So many museums these days are designed as a grandiose testament to their architects rather then those who are supposed to be represented therein. This one is quite the opposite. Small, staffed by volunteers, exceptionally well presented and chock full of interesting artifacts, exhibits and...More
