Neat, organized and excellent volunteer guides! Many of the guides actually flew or worked on the airplanes in the collection. For anyone with relatives who trained in Brandon, there is a binder to check out. The barber at the airport had every man whose hair he cut sign his name in the binder. i believe the names are cataloged so you don't have to search every page!

Thanks for your comments! Once a new airman arrived at a manning depot, he was required to get a haircut. At Number 2 Manning Depot in Brandon, where people wishing to enlist in the RCAF would come to sign up, the barber was a man by the name of Jack Taylor. In the photograph above the display case, he is the barber who is on the right observing his employees at work. Jack Taylor asked everyone whose hair he cut to sign a notebook. By the end of the war, the books contained approximately 22,000 signatures. Often, visitors can find their signatures or the signature of someone they know in the barber’s books. These have been digitized, which makes finding signatures much easier; if you would like a member of staff, or a volunteer, to search the digital version of the books for a signature, please do not hesitate to ask.

Excellent review of a place in time

Small but packed with history and ww11 facts. I really appreciated the monument out front with the names of the fallen soldiers who have trained there. Quite something to see family names listed. The planes, the uniforms, the training regime, the old jeeps, and all kids of other interesting displays. Helpful staff who can answer any questions. Not much to do in Brandon but this museum is worth the trip.

Must see aviation museum. Make sure to get the "chalkboard story"!!!
Aug. 2018 • Family
The staff and volunteers sets this museum apart - the passion and attention to detail shines through.

This is an amazing aviation museum with an awesome collection of planes and vehicles, but also has great dioramas, propaganda, and personal accounts. The kids can even play in a modified training plane.

**Most impressive is a sobering 300 foot granite wall with the names of over 18,000 service men and women who gave their lives for our freedom. Every Canadian should walk the length of this wall and give thanks for all we have because of these brave people, and remember what this country was built on.
