  • Our grandsons and us certainly had a wonderful visit, there were hands on stuff for the kids to do and lots to keep us interested, people very knowledgeable about the museum and planes on show.  more »
  • Great displays, lots of care obviously went into them and you can really imagine the conditions those planes were flying in. Friendly staff and volunteers. The information boards were all interesting....  more »

  • It's a museum with airplanes. The histories of the various aircraft and their links to Edmonton are interesting. The flight simulators were fun and easy enough for a four year old to use. Instructions for landing would be nice but seeing where you can crash is good too.
  • Great displays. Lots of tidbits about Canadian and northern aviation. Great looking displays ranging from bush pilots to modern commercial to military aircraft. There are a couple of "simulators " to try your hand at flying. Little souvenir shop with some cool gifts. There was a couple of volunteers wandering around answering questions and telling stories. Great place to go and spend a couple of hours. They have visiting days to view the restoration department, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Worth a look to see the new projects.
