This museum was amazing. What a piece of history it contains. Amazing video to watch. This was a great place to visit, of an event I knew nothing about.

Our visit here seemed like a bonus being able to learn this very interesting piece of aviation history that is almost forgotten now. The young staff were keen and well informed (and perhaps a bit bored). Displays were very good and informative.

Stayed in Botwood for the night and visited the museum especially with the Catalinas on display and the information about them. Botwood also had a lot of murals on buildings.

We made the mistake of going on a Sunday. Along with about a dozen other tourists, we arrived at the Museum, only to find it closed. Definitely a disappointment, as we were really looking forward to this. Oh well, next time.

We enjoy the visit of this small museum. We learned a lot on the first commercial Atlantic flights which were made with flyingboats from Botwood NL I wished they would have kept a replica of these giant Boeing aircraft. There is nothing left of this historical site except for the Bay.
