This is a cool little aviation museum and a great choice for a rainy day. Note - the outdoor museum is closed if there is thunder/lightening. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and were very helpful. This would get a 4 star rating if we didn’t have little kids with us - there could be more activities for children.

Located close to the 401, this museum is a must for the kids and aviation enthusiasts. Super affordable, amazing staff, lots of history to see both inside and outside where many historic planes and helicopters are exhibited for everyone to see. A must see if you are anywhere in the area.

A wonderful collection that I’m sure will be enhanced once restrictions are lifted.
A great idea to have outdoor displays of aircraft. The volunteers and staff were outstanding

Located right next to the Air Force Base you'll see planes zipping overhead while you enjoy your time there.

There is lots to see, new stuff includes an Olympic gold medal, the bear in a new location and you can catch a glimpse of the giant plane they are restoring.

As of March 2022 they still require masks and proof of vaccination.

Because my Dad, who was a WWII veteran as well as a peacetime RCAF Cpl in Trenton, I wanted to visit the museum. The grounds are laid out well, permitting a good area in which to view everything and the nostalgia associated with the remembrance bricks and plaques makes the visit well worthwhile. If you have no one to feel nostalgic about, there are still lots of aircraft to see.

Great way to learn about the beginning and ongoing Air Force in Canada. While there, we were able to witness training going on in the skies above, which was pretty cool, definitely makes you proud. The planes are pretty cool and the volunteers at this facility are amazing, knowledgeable and very helpful. The price for entry is unbelievably low. Since the government doesn’t help in the efforts to restore these planes it’s an amazing place that we have. Great way to spend the day. It’s open and airy, and surprisingly they do not need to see vaccine certification for COVID. All COVID protocols are in place, therefore some things are not available. Enjoyed it a lot!

Having paid our admission, we were greeted by a very friendly man, a volunteer I assume, whose name I should have asked in order to give him praise on this site. Mea culpa: I did not. Anyway, he gave a full account of the Handley Page Halifax heavy bomber that is prominently displayed in the hall, complete with the story of the April 1945 mission that left it sunk in the Norwegian lake from which it was retrieved 50 years later. After that we were on our own, and we toured both the hall, which has lots of history, and the park full of military aircraft outside, including a Spitfire, a Hurricane, and an F86 Sabre. Great stuff. Highly recommended for kids and adults!

This place is amazing. We went on Jul 31 and even my kids had a good time. Great staff. Cafeteria is clean and has a wide choice of sandwiches and the price is reasonable. The only thing I don’t like it’s the smell of the gasoline inside the premises from one of the planes. Overall we had a great time.

Great place to visit on both a rainy and a sunny day! It is large and spacious. They have arrows on the floor directing traffic; as far as COVID goes it is perfect! Not too busy, lots to see and do.

The flight trainers are currently closed.

They still have the bear search challenge with a very cool reward when you find him!

The outside displays are also very cool!

The Halifax that is in the main area is quite impressive. The display is very interesting. The outside has more displays as well as bricks throughout with names engraved on them. Very friendly staff. Very clean facilities.
