  • The Museum has alit of great things going on all the time. They have a large selection of aircraft from various different eras and plaques giving a description. It's a great place to go to take the whole family to see a little bit of history of the Air Force and highly recommended.
  • The museum on The Royal Canadian Air Force Base in Trenton, Ontario is a very well maintained and historical place to visit. In the store there are many amazing products for sale. What I loved the most was the model airplanes that were for sale. Also some military clothing and postors! The staff were very wonderful, well trained people. I loved the old military air planes that were on display.
  • Excellent variety of aircraft including a restored Halifax bomber. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly
  • You can plan to spend the entire day here, learning about aviation plus air force history. This museum is also fully wheelchair accessible, and there are scooters for exploring the planes on display outdoors.
  • A gem of a museum with a growing collection of historically significant airplanes on display. More airplanes are being restored for display. The indoor exhibits are very family friendly, with a couple of small airplanes you can sit in. The day we visited a retired pilot was in the outdoor C-130 Hercules talking about his experiences in this airplane type. The outdoor airplanes are on a very accessible walkway.
