Owner description: Located on a former military air base just 5 kilometres from the Prime Minister’s residence in Ottawa, the Museum focuses on aviation in Canada within an international context, from its beginnings in 1909 to the present day. As Canada’s contribution to aviation expanded to include aerospace technology, the Museum’s collection and mandate grew to include space flight. The Collection itself consists of more than 130 aircraft and artifacts (propellers, engines) from both civil and military service. It gives particular, but not exclusive, reference to Canadian achievements. The most extensive aviation collection in Canada, it is also considered one of the finest aviation museums in the world. Museum Highlights: Largest surviving piece of the famous Avro Arrow (its nose section); the original Canadarm used on the Endeavour space shuttle; Lancaster WWII bomber; Life in Orbit: The International Space Station exhibition.

I recently took my 11-year-old grandson to the Star Wars Identities exhibit at the Aviation and Space Museum in Ottawa. It is on until September and I highly recommend it for anyone. I am not a Star Wars aficionado and I was unsure what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised. Both my grandson and I learned things about ourselves and our own identities through this wonderful interactive exhibit. Children younger than 7 or 8 may not get much out of the experience but other than that, do yourself a favour and check this out!

Even if you are not an aviation buff, the history and unique exhibits are worth visiting. Great care in preservation and restoration of the wonderful exhibits, from the very first aircraft, to modern spaceflight. Unique WW II exhibits also.

Free Parking!!!

The museum is very spacious and open. You can get right up beside the aircraft - no need to be looking from 50 feet away. Some vintage aircraft that any aviator would love to see.

Unique collection of aircraft from Canada's aviation history. Check out early models of planes built in Canada, as well as the first jets. Responsive, knowledgable tour guides.
