  • Lot's of history. Interesting museum to visit with kids and adults as well. many things to see and learn 
  • I enjoyed it,very informative and interesting. Was neat to see a nose from an actual Avro Arrow. There were some aircraft and that lacked information aside from a sign indicating the model. I was surprised how little space related material there was however, but the huge aviation complement was excellent.
  • A wonderfully education display of Canada's aviation history. I love that the planes are organized by era. There is every type of plane from a biplane to more current military models. There is even a display on air mail delivery in Canada. On the other side of the coin, there is a great space display including the decommission Canada arm from the space shuttle. There is enough interactive displays to keep children engaged. A very nice place to visit.
  • My friends were married on the Enterprise Bridge and I cannot stress how much they loved being able to have this experience. It was such a unique wedding venue and was exactly what my friends wanted. The staff working the event that night were so much fun and just amazing. I hope they enjoyed it as much as we did :)
  • Museum was good. Clean organized. Nice exhibits. Hosts awesome exhibits like the StarFleet Academy Experience but if you are into aviation this is a must see.
  • Had a great time at the museum. The Star Trek Experience is a lot of fun, and the aircraft on display are well laid out, and interesting to see up close. It's a must see for aviation buffs of all ages!
