  • They can't seem to decided when they're open. Everytime we went back there was a new note saying it wasn't open until a later date.
  • An excellent museum. It's interesting to see how important Gander was in transcontinental aviation in the not too distant past. It was fascinating listening to recordings of pilots and traffic controllers during the 911 landings.
  • What a great display of history. Real models scattered about, brings a lot of curiosity about these times.
  • Really good aviation history exhibits. Full planes on display outside.
  • Great aviation museum with lots of local history. Our kids really enjoyed the visit and we all learned something about aviation and Gander.
