I toured the museum in September as part of a group. The tour guide was informative, responsive to questions and entertaining. The exhibits cover the history of aviation in the 20th century with a focus on British Columbian and Canadian aircraft. There are planes, lots of them, tens ofunmounted engines in various stages of dress, helicopters, innumerable model aircraft and a good collection of memorabilia related to aviation in the First and Second Wars. This would be a fun tour with children. I climbed the stairs into a late '50s Viscount airliner, looked into the cockpit of a jet trainer, and was impressed by the huge size of the museum's latest restoration project, a Lancaster bomber. Don't miss it!

This is a really nice museum. I have recommended it many times. Children and adults alike find it interesting. The volunteers are so knowledgeable, kind and friendly and the price of admission is very good. We went to the open house there and it was fabulous. Well worth the visit.

I visited the museum on the 6th October 2019. The museum consists of 2 hangars , a renevation area and an outside apron. The hangars are pretty full of aircraft, the lighting is okay, but could be a bit brighter to help with photography. There are volunteer guides who will take you on a guided tour. You will need one of these guides if you wat to visit the aircraft stored outside, as those aircraftare pareda sall concrete area tatis on te airport itsef. The museum is in the process of renevating the cockpit section of a Lancaster, the body of the aircraft can be foud in hangar 2. Outside theyhave a Viscount airlinertat you can goiside and take photographs The museum is worth a visit and is reasonably priced. The museum caters for children as well. Finally, the museum has a gift shop as well for you to buy souveniers.

Always enjoyable, interesting for all, even when boys were younger. Reasonably priced, $16 for the 3 boys and one senior Great volunteer guides, many of whom were pilots or crew, who take time to relate interesting background about the planes, exhibits, to the children. Very interesting for adults too! Planes of varying vintage, plus three flight simulators which the boys were fascinated with!
