  • Wonderful little museum containing unique artifacts and a piece of a steel girder from the World Trade Center.
  • Great place to stop and visit. There is a lot of history and information
  • Great description of how Gander airport started and it's history.
  • 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.
