a great morning for kids of all ages

took both the kids and grandparents here, and had a ball. coming from an ex-flying family, we really enjoyed seeing the diverse range of planes kept on the premises.

It was fun being QAM. Kids and adults enjoyed The exhibits and took us back in time. Engine run was spectacular.

Came here on the open running aero engines day, which was great! Only happens a few times a year where they crank up antique engines that roar to life! There were over 70 planes on display, some beautifully restored. Great for antique airplane buffs. There were ice cream trucks, sausage sizzle, and a kids playing area for the others whilst... More

Right up there with the best air museums in the country. Get up close to a real F1-11 and see some of the great military jets from the Cold War. Set aside a few hours and be sure to take a hat.

Amazing variety of aircraft with some in amazing condition like the F 111. However some of the aircraft are very tired but I actually like some patina to add some variety.

Wanted to bring my kids here...and they were not disappointed. Lots of interesting planes for them to see and choppers. My favourites were the F-111 and the A2-310 Huey. Definitely worth a visit and good value at $30 for a family ticket.

So much fun for our small kids (and really big kids). Friendly staff and well laid out. $30 for our family and worth every cent!

I was on a trip from the UK and noticed this on the map and made a detour from the Bruce Highway to make a visit. I had less than 2 hours available but enjoyed the visit which cost only 13 dollars. The F-111 was the centre piece but there were plenty of other aircraft including quite a few that... More

I have now taken my grandkids (6,4 &2) there three times and they pester me constantly to be taken back. The visibility of engine working parts, open fuselage and ability to climb into many planes is a source of fascination for them. It is a great spot to go for 2-3 hours

Much more extensive than we expected. Very well run venture, spotlessly clean, great exhibits, any undercover. Good to see volunteers working on planes. Good coffee too Great place for plane enthusiasts.
