  • Wonderful, small-feel. Displays are very well done, there is lots of information and some hands-on. The planes are very cool and you can even walk through the work area dedicated to current restoration projects. Staff are always courteous. Planning my 8yr olds birthday party!
  • Excellent place to visit, I liked a lot!!! Alberta Aviation Museum is one place that kids will get crazy. We went there a little before Halloween, and was all decorated and games to play. They have an amazing planes collection and historical pieces. The Alberta Aviation Museum is place to go, I recommend to everybody who wants to get fun with family!!!
  • Awesome museum! Great displays and they offer kids programs as well! A great place to spend an afternoon. It's one of a few of the buildings from the airport that used to be there as well.
  • I had an amazing experience. The Volunteers were amazing and had a detailed knowledge about all of the planes and more. If you go, make sure you ask questions to get the full experience. Even the museum itself is an artifact with so much history. Will definitely go again.
  • Amazing place, very well documented! They exposition are focoused on Alberta's aviation history. Not much interactive, neighter attractive. They have really amazing planes but the way it's exposed doesn't seem so attractive. Sonetimes I had the inpression that is abandoned. The worse part is that we cant go inside the planes!!!! The explanation I had was that the planes were deteriorating, but I've seen other expositions that this is not a problem. There is a simulator but no one to help you. I have some pilot skills but I guss someone whose doest have cold be a little lost. In general is a good place but I wish it could be better.
