Owner description: The Museum engages visitors with the wonder of flight through its spectacular collection, educational programming, activities, and special events. The Museum focuses on aviation in Canada, but within an international context, from its beginnings in 1909 to the present day. As Canada’s contribution to aviation expanded to include aerospace technology, the Museum’s collection and mandate grew to include space flight.The Collection itself consists of more than 130 aircraft and artifacts (propellers, engines) from both civil and military service. It gives particular, but not exclusive, reference to Canadian achievements. The most extensive aviation collection in Canada, it is also considered one of the finest in the world.Care and development of this collection remains one of the Museum’s main purposes. The Museum practises conservation and restoration techniques to keep the collection in a condition equal to the highest standards.

“Fun Place”

Great place to come and see some planes. Very affordable. Great for adults and kids. They have a play place for kids where they could do arts and crafts. Lots fun seeing new and old planes.

“A must at least once!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

I went once with my family, and it's very interesting, even if you don't know much about aviation and that it's not your top interest, you will find some interesting facts and learn a lot about the aviation history and so much more. Even children's like this!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

This was well worth the trip. Not a huge museum but packed with all sorts of flying machines and interesting notations about them. Well laid out too.

“Many Planes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

The museum has over 100 planes from early flight to almost the present day. Unless you are an aviation nut, you can do this museum in less than one hour. If you go in during the last hour, the museum is free! They also have a store to buy things.
