What a well-thought-out museum! The information is thorough, and there are a great many interactive displays one can climb up, on and into or try out. The two films were wonderfully done--great choice having the iconic Gordon Pinsent as the narrator for the firefighting film!...More

I found it interesting and a pleasant way to pass a little time away. We were a group of four so we could talk among ourselves about the old planes.

We were looking around the museum and one of the curators/mechanics started talking to us and gave us so much information about the planes and history. What a treat that was. Thanks very much!

$12 for adults, $11 for seniors, $7 for students, $3 for children. Children under 5 are free with an adult. These are in Canadian dollars. It is worth it !
