  • Superb displays. Don't' get confused when buying tickets, though. Straight ahead is the counter for overpriced special exhibits, but off to the right is the actual counter to buy tickets for regular museum area. The gift shop is awesome.
  • 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 :)
  • For the price I paid to get into the museum I thought I'd get a tour, but I didn't get one. The aerospace part of the museum was the most interesting part. I thought it was a nice place, but it was quite pricey.
