Loved this museum, Learned some Canadian history that was new to me, and was just incredible. Appreciated the memorial wall and chapel and was fascinated by the Barbers Book. The volunteers were knowledgeable and excellent (including a demonstration of morse code!) Would love to come back to have a flight in a Tiger Moth!

Nice aviation museum. A collection of planes and vehicles. The hanger is very old and unique. Small gift shop. Friendly staff.

The BCATP Museum was a ‘living’ Museum and been a top destination of mine for several years. It exceeded my expectations by a long way. For me, driving up to, and stepping into a 1941 wooden hangar evoked emotions that I haven’t experienced before. Then to be up close to five aircraft types that my father flew while he was in Canada over eighty years ago was the icing on the cake.
An awesome place and I hope it continues to expand and grow through greater awareness.

Cool old planes & vehicles to look at. Not badly priced. Took Under 2 hours. Similar to the plane museum in Winnipeg.

Lots of Airforce memorabilia. Very knowlageble staff. They have a chalk board from a school that was buried in a wall fully intact snapshot of fund raising for the war. They have several aircraft and vehicles, some you can enter.

The memorial outside is truly awe inspiring.

Overall great museum and a must see if in Brandon.

My wife and we’re fortunate today to each go up in the Harvard while it was in Winnipeg for the Flyover event tomorrow.
This was very special to us as my father was a aircraft technician while in the AirForce during WWII. He spoke very fondly of his experiences servicing and flying the Harvard.
Now we have a small idea of what meant so much to him.
Thanks very much to Jeff our pilot for a wonderful and memorable experience.
He and his support crew are very professional and personable. Thanks to all of them!
We would highly recommend taking a flight in any of the aircraft offered by the museum which in turn supports their ability to operate.

Interesting museum. Learned a number of interesting facts that I did not know before. Liked the old airplanes, cars, etc. "Parker" was very friendly and helpful. Admission was reasonable.

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.
