“Excellent Museum - great displays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

This was an excellent museum - much larger than I expected. There are two hangers filled with aircraft, a flight simulator, and an aviation related art gallery upstairs. Displays include airplanes, helecopters, biplane, a Snowbird and aircraft under restoration. Displays are very well done, I especially enjoyed the interactive display about the sinking of the Bismark - a touchscreen with CG animation made it much more interesting than just reading display panels. A great stop if you are on your way out to Eastern Passage and Fisherman's Cove. Admission is by donation, which is a surprise as usually museums of this caliber charge an admission fee.
