Owner description: For more than 80 years, Edmonton’s Blatchford Field was the center of a bustling aviation community that spurred the growth of the city, the region, and the North. Hundreds of men and women let their dreams take flight from this historic airfield, flying everything from biplanes to bush planes, bombers to jets. The museum, located in the last remaining double-long, double-wide hangar from the World War II era, is committed to keeping that aviation heritage alive by sharing their stories, offering education programs, and providing new and exciting opportunities for families to explore Edmonton’s rich aviation history.

My wife and I went there a few times. There was many interesting displays to see. The rebuilt air planes are just awesome!. They have some video presentations I thought were very informative.
If you like photographs,there are plenty on display. Good place to spend an afternoon.

Very "hands on" you can walk up to the planes, there are very few barriers. Also great history display on the perimeter.

Went to the Alberta aviation museum for the Remembrance day ceremony and had a chance to visit the museum free of charge. They had was a nice presentation of Canadian aviation history. There were restored bush planes and retired military aircraft that could be viewed up close. My favorite was the F86 Sabre airplane from the cold war. Definitely recommend visiting if you have the chance!

Small but packed with vintage pictures, planes and war info.

Check it out next time you have a couple of hours to kill and don't know what to do.

Great volunteers. An impressive display! Indoor and outdoor exhibits. Great for kids because there are some great interactive exhibits like simulators. You can get right up close. Lots to learn!
