  • A gem for the region. Have visited a few times and always impressed. We attended a private function at the museum and were able to wander though the hanger after an excellent presentation. So nice to have been able to see the exhibit and hear the Ann Frank story. Something for all to experience. Makes me proud to live in the region. What a great team of volunteers!!! Thanks
  • An amazing experience for young and old. The volunteers here are former pilots themself of many of the aircraft on display offering a great insight into them. Would recommend coming at opening as there is a lot to see and do here. Great fun for the whole family offering the chance to get into making your of the planes. Will be back again!
  • Took my son there a couple weeks ago, he loves planes and this museum he thoroughly enjoyed. I had to drag him out of there. Really great prices and pleasantly surprised with the cafe as well. The staff is super nice. Would definitely recommend going.
  • Go there and show some respect. We have a great history... go learn a little more about the heroes who gave everything. They were jumping out of airplanes, not knowing if they'd ever see thier loved ones again just so we could play Pokemon Go and froth over our keyboards on a nightly basis. Great place. Would warplane again.
  • To be able to touch history, in person, is an awesome experience. My father worked on ww.2 planes like the Avro Lancaster, Spitfire, Mosquito, Hurricane and Tempest and afterwards returned to Ontario to be a OPP police constable. As a young child I was fascinated with these handsome airplanes of that era and did many plastic model kits. Residing in Ontario for a short time, with many bad memories of small town hicks, a stolen heart and unfriendly people; I had the pleasure of seeing some of these historic planes and recommend it as a tourist attraction. We enjoy our freedoms today, including costly refugees and foreign newcomers, because of the heroic sacrifices of our soldiers during ww1 & ww2 including those behind the action. Thank you, may the heavens welcome new angels.
