“Extremely well organized and Informative”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

If you have any interest in Canadian aviation history this is the place. It records flight by man from Leonardo DaVincci sketches, the Wright Bros. , WW1,WW2, Bush planes and pilots up to modern times. Not a boring old museum !! Interactive displays and simulators. Great for all ages. Easy to get to and very well priced. Try it !!!!

“Educational and Great Value”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We toured through this duringa recent visit to Edmonton. I believe the price is only 10 dollars per person which is very reasonable considering how many planes they have in the museum. There is a wide variety from many generations and is definitely worth a look if you enjoy aviation or military history. Very cool

“Informative and interesting”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

There are many airplanes of the past here, including some famous (at least, famous in Alberta). They were well marked, and it was fun to read about them and look at the airplanes. There were a few interactive things too - our daughter couldn't get the flight simulators to work, but we all enjoyed going into one of the 5 seat passenger planes. There were some fun artifacts dealing with Alberta airplanes as well. We would have liked a few more interactive things here - our 5 and 8 year old children did get bored with the exhibits.

“Must See!”

This museum takes us back to World War II with displays and actual photos of the men and women who served our county. Great place for children to see and learn
