  • Of course the planes are the best part of the visit, but the informational displays on the first and second floor were really educational and interesting.  more »
  • Visited with my father who is a WWII vet. He was almost brought to tears. He also recognized a name of a serviceman in one of the books which list the pilots during the war. Well maintained and inform...  more »

  • This is a nice way to spend a couple of hours. An interesting experience and important part of our history. Worth taking a little drive out to see. Kids would love it and there are airplanes they can sit in. Lots of historical information and facts, old letters and names of people that served. Excellent for school trips in my opinion. A small souvenir shop. And a nice day out.
  • We discovered the museum by accident driving cross country on our way out to BC (spotted a yellow training aircraft by a roadside hotel). I found this museum fascinating; since I had just read a book about the Commonwealth Air Training Plan and the great effort to plan and build the infrastructure to train the air crews for the war. My Dad, at the time a young man of 18, attended the CATP to be trained as a mult-engine pilot. Dad was assigned as an instructor before the end of the war. He lost both his older brothers, experienced pilots, to the war effort. The museum brought to life all the stories that I read in the CAPT book and adventures our father told us about as a child ! Everything from the hanger, Tiger Moths, Avro Ansons (multi-engine trainer), Link Trainer, etc I have been to many excellent air museums, I would consider this museum a diamond in the rough, and a must see for anyone interested in the Canadian Air Force (or British Commonwealth) early history ! Hats off to the volunteer group that has help preserve this key part of Canada's past ! Thank You !
  • Beautiful place kid can enjoy a pedal plane wile you visit it's a big piece of Canada history. The is a plane you can sit in. It is pretty good.
  • The museum is actually in the original Hanger that was used for the Commonwealth Air Training Plan. Also Russell Crowe made a movie at the museum.
  • This place is so old and run down
