  • Very interesting museum, great people there to guide and tell you about airplanes, history of aviation...... small but very organized and well maintained museum.
  • Good collection of old warplanes. The price is lil high just to see them. It would be nice if there are more war simulations than having only a little one which is more for kids. Adding some recent advanced plane models would make this place more wonderful.
  • Great history! I wish we (as a city) could support them more so that the necessary repairs could be made.
  • Good collection of old planes. Something to be expected of Edmonton (not a military town and what not). That being said, there truly are great planes such the "Hirth", with interesting back story. Despite of being a modern military plane fan and I'm happy with my visit.
  • 😎 history of Edmonton groups involved in the war. Many relics from the wartime period. Cute giftshop.

Where to stay in Edmonton

For access to the best entertainment options and proximity to the North Saskatchewan River and the parks surrounding it, you can't beat Downtown's accommodations. Look near the intersection of Jasper Avenue and 100 Street NW--you'll be right next to Central metro station and just a few minutes' walk from the riverside park. If you're after nightlife and cafe culture, look south of the river in Strathcona, or in the neighboring student hub of Garneau. You can also choose from a large selection of accommodations farther out in West Edmonton.
