Seeing Planes

It's not a big place but you get to wander around and see planes from the past and how far we have come in aviation.

We had driven past this attraction a few times in the past but just enjoyed our first visit. The museum has several interesting and unique exhibits and the hangar is quite remarkable to visit. Our kids all thought it was a great visit and they were all quite engaged for 2-3 hours. We would return again.

They have done a great job of building this museum. The displays are great. You are near the airport for plane watching. It is in and outdoor so weather is not an issue.

There are so many airplanes inside here and it's really super neat to see them. Would recommend! Stuff for the whole family but not interactive exhibits, a lot of looking and reading.

We were a mature group of four couples that stopped by as this museum was walking distance from our hotel. It is an interesting facility with two buildings housing old aircrafts and featuring the history of Canada's air force with much memorabilia. While we were there, we noticed numerous young families and the children were having a great time. They... More

We stopped while on a trip through the Canadian Rockies and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The museum has an interesting variety of vintage airplanes, especially those with special significance to Canada's many contributions to the war effort. I enjoyed the museum and was especially interested in seeing that they have facilities for family gatherings.

This was an interesting museum which celebrated local heroes from different wars. the planes were mostly original although i think that the Sopwith camel was reconstructed. obviously a lot of care has been taken to either replicate, restore and preserve the planes.

We had a very interesting talk with one of the guides there and learned a lot about immigration in Canada. The have lots of airplanes of display many rebuild and put on display. Many long hours have been put in by all of the dedicated volunteers to create this museum. They have summer camp programs for kids too.
