  • Excellent layout and amazing exhibits of planes from every era. Wasn't busy at all so there was no waits to check out the mock up cockpits. Plenty of photo ops. The space exhibit and canada arm was a nice addition.
  • We visited today because it was open doors day for the storage wing, it was nice to get reacquainted with some of the old friends that are hidden away. Of course, we also visited the main museum with our family membership. We love this place!
  • The interactive and static displays are great to learn about aircraft that were important to Canada and the world's history! If only we could fly... Oh right! The bi-plane maybe when we have more money!
  • Great historical pieces. Knowledgeable guides. We booked a children's party. Very well organized activities and friendly staff.
  • Great place for young kids on a rainy day. Lots to keep curious minds entertained for a few hours. Will sometimes have airplane/heli rides for the family.
