  • One of the best (aviation) museums in Canada! Cater to all ages and do a great job linking aviation history to this part of Canada.
  • That is truly an amazing experience. One of the best most memorable moments I have ever witnessed. Well Done. Anyone who is interested in airplanes needs to check this out. This is a running Lancaster everybody. If you are looking for a great day to spend with family or friends. You have to see it. Cheers.
  • Amazing! A hidden gem. Super nice staff. Got to see history in action.
  • Awesome piece of Canadian history. God bless the over 10000 men who gave the ultimate sacrifice for us to be here. I've nothing but respect for all who have served and those that still do. I learned a lot about the Canadian Bomber Command in a short but informative and excellent visit here. It's worth stopping by.
  • Not really my thing, but my ex-boyfriend was interested, so we went in. The value can’t be beat, as it’s by donation, but it was very informative and interesting.
