Friendly tour, experienced staff and loads of information for kids and us. Super interesting to learn about Canadian aircraft history during World War II.

Would definitely go back when we come back to the Windsor region!

Some of the planes brought back melancholic memories, for my dad was a pilot in WWII.
Very nice was the sea plane

Have visited multiple times. Always a selection of interesting aircraft of many eras. Restoration of Lancaster and Mosquito show progress on every visit. Always more to see.

We had a wonderful visit to create a very inexpensive couple of hours of fun. My son (8) and I (29) went to visit the Museum and were treated to a personal guided tour with experienced staff. In my opinion the place looks a lot like a mechanics hanger as well as a historic museum and functions to teach both theory of flight, mechanics of flight, and history of military in the area.

Great for tourist and Windsorites alike.

We took our secondary school History Club here on a Saturday field trip for a couple of hours. I also brought my 11 yr old son. We were all engaged here for the entire afternoon. The volunteers who took us around to give us a tour and information were friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the local connections to the wars. We all enjoyed ourselves very much here.

The work that these volunteers are doing on the restoration of the two aircraft are amazing. Each giving their different expertise to complete the projects.
Spend a hour or two here and drop a buck or two in the donation jar.
Free admission to veterans.

Small but mighty. Numerous aircraft in one hanger related to Canadian Aviation history. From biplanes to bombers. Several aircraft are being restored by local craftsman. A tribute to man and machine. Our guide Robert gave us an excellent tour and was very knowledgeable.
One highlight was a replica of the A.G.Bell (the inventor of the telephone) biplane that introduced ailerons and wheels to aircraft. This biplane is being built from historic blueprints by dedicated artisans.
This is truly a destination for those interested in aviation. Some kid friendly exhibits.
