“Good for those interested.”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

My husband is interested in military history so he enjoys it a lot, it is fun for kids to see the different planes and it has some good gifts in the gift shop for those interested in Aviation and the military, after a while I get bored and tired walking on the concrete and they need to provide some places to sit, otherwise it can be an interesting outing.

“Had a great visit.”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Great history, Great Displays, Great volunteers/Staff, and great location.

I especially liked how they have more jets in their outdoor displays than Calgary's Aviation Museum. Not to put down Calgary, but hey, if two jets are good, FOUR jets must be better!

“An interesting collection, many one-of-kind displays”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

The Alberta Aviation Museum is located on-site at the Edmonton City Centre (Blatchford Field) Airport. The building is the last two-sided hangar from the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, still in existence and in use. The displays include full-size aircraft, notable among them is a Bomarc missile and a de Havilland Mosquito. Other exhibits include an Air Cadet history room, as well as displays that tell the story of aviation in Alberta. Well worth a visit.

We enjoyed our visit this past weekend. Great to see the PWA 737 open to the public. Fantastic vintage commercial airlines displays.

“a bit diappointed but still enjoyed”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I visited with my wife and son and this was the first attraction we visited in Edmonton. I found it to be overpriced for what you get to see. The jet outside was not open, but yet they were still charging full admission. Still i would recommend to go with your kids as they would like and learn something new...
