A lovely place with very nice people there. You can see how passionate they are about aviation. They all have aviation background and will give you details. They even have a self built simulator which is great for kids! Nice place to visit. We had the luck to visit on a family day.

We visited the museum on Thanksgiving Day and were given a warm greeting and a personal tour of the entire facility. The entrance fees are reasonable and the museum is run by friendly, knowledgeable volunteers who are passionate about airplanes, the history behind them and the formation of the museum. It was the perfect place for my son, who is interested in becoming a pilot one day, to see actual artifacts and meet people who love flight as much as him. They shared details with him that only someone who loves airplanes would be able to do. There were things to appeal to the child in of all of us from a huge Mega Blocs CL 415 model, to art on the outside of the building made from airplane parts, to actual aircraft seats to sit inside when we got tired or wanted to dream. The building itself it quite interesting, with the museum being housed in an old stone barn and a stairway up through the silo. You can see a few airplanes being restored as well as finished aircraft. It is a small facility, but packed with many goodies and larger than it initially looks with 2 floors. The tour was personalized to our interests, ages and backgrounds. It was wonderful to see the pieces of aviation history capsulized in various formats (beautiful paintings, airplane models, model aircraft scenes, artifacts, and life sized historic airplanes with movable parts). There were models of various sizes and some with details of the interior of aircraft. You could sit in 2 of the planes and move the control surfaces. There were also 2 flight simulators to sit in (on Saturdays and during special events when the technicians are there). Unfortunately we missed that opportunity. We were especially fascinated by the Bristol Bolingbroke which showed the advances in GPS over time. The gift shop had unique items reasonably priced and considerately chosen for aviation enthusiasts. It is too bad the museum isn't well advertised. We came upon it by luck after a visit to the local zoo by seeing road signs and a few highway signs. Please note the map shown on this site it not correct, but the address is.

This hidden gem holds several relics that tell the story of the unsung heroes behind the evolution of Canadian aviation. This museum (read: workshop) has something for everybody, whether it is a magnificent art collection, jet engines, full scale airplanes...You can witness volunteers working on aircraft.
