  • On Canada's 150th birthday, the Lancaster was rolled out of it's hangar and all four engines were fired up and ran for about 20 mintues. It was most impressive and emotional. We were up close to the f...  more »

  • Big bombers, smaller planes, even a few to sit in for photo ops. Was surprised they had all this here. Worth a visit if you're in the area.  more »

  • Great place to visit if you are interested in history or aviation. Entrance is by donation. They have amazing displays. Quite a few of the aircraft are not roped off, so you can really see more than in most museums. Also, there are some displays where you can actually sit in the the pilot’s seat and get a photo opportunity. Well worth stopping.
  • Easy stop as you drive through town. Love that they have the bomb bay doors of the Lancaster open, don't see that in displayed planes very often. Didn't go into the museum, just took pics of the planes outside
  • Wonderful air museum with lots pictures of air force airports and information and statistics for them. Pleasant staff and more than willing to demonstrate and explain different components of aircraft memorabilia On special occasions they even start the 4 engine d Lancaster bomber. Wow, the noise and the wind off that air plane.
  • It just so happened that an ex-snowbirds Tudor jet was parked outside! Gotta love small towns.
  • It's a must see. Freedom isn't free. Cool piece of history.
