A great collection of Canadian warplanes as well as other unique exhibits. The star of the museum must be the Avro Lancaster, one of only two remaining Lancasters still in flying condition. There are a number of aircraft from Canada’s own aircraft manufacturing industry, some...More

It was a great place to visit lots of things to see and do. Great restaurant. Had my old 79 Lincoln's picture taking under a old airplane.

Great location for the plane enthusiast. My son loved it! He was 6 when he went and didn’t want to leave. The souvenir shop didn’t break the bank and had a lot of unique items.

Our grandson enjoyed everything about our visit to the museum. Climbing in and out of planes worked off energy, and he still enjoyed the Lego area and other toys. Gift shop had nicely built replicas that he has played with since he received them.

It’s more about their height and ability to manage the controls. Age isn’t a criteria. To be able to see properly, I’d say 4’8” and up. And probably around the ages of 6+ can follow the controls
