  • 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.
  • Great aviation museum with lots of local history. Our kids really enjoyed the visit and we all learned something about aviation and Gander.
  • 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.
  • Excellent museum about Gander and civil aviation. There is some small activities for the kids.
