The museum appeals to those interested in war history, airplanes, and such. They try to restore many of their historic planes to be able to fly them again. One of only two flying Lancaster bombers lives here. Lots to see, touch.

Although they closed down due to heat on our first attempt to visit, I am glad we went back for another try. Hands on displays were great for the kids (and us older kids) and the knowledgeable volunteers were terrific. Great display of Canadian air heritage and a great display of restored and "rough found" historic aircraft.

Was there a few months ago & was there for 15 minutes. It was a total bore. Even plane enthusiasts will have hard time sticking around. Must make it more children friendly.Thanks for reading ttys.

We did a sleepover here-a few Guiding and Scout groups and each group had a designated area to sleep-was very exciting to sleep right under the planes!! I was pleasantly surprised that the kids really enjoyed learning about the planes, listened to several staff and volunteers who shared stories about their times in some of these actual planes. A great... More

This is one of the best museums that you will experience. You get to see a wide variety of aircraft up close and personal and many of the behind the scenes aspects of aviation, how it is built, how it works and how it is maintained. Woven into this is the history of how aircraft and related technologies have played... More

I made my first visit to this museum July 3rd 2016. My recent experience touring the National Aviation Museum was fresh in my mind, and I really wasn't expecting much to be honest. As I walked around, I started noticing drip pans under many of the aircraft on display, and I realized most of the machines I was looking at... More

My husband has wanted to take a flight in one of the war planes at the Museum as long as I've known him and today was his day! My Mother and I tagged along expecting nothing much since he would be in the air for about 30 minutes. We were wrong; the volunteers are so knowledgeable and there is such... More
