We attended the Lancaster run-up and were very impressed. The museum is interactive and pretty much without restriction in that you could wander just about anywhere. There are some amazing displays of war-time planes. A must-visit.

A nice little gem in Nanton. Great history and valued collectibles to view. Price is a donation. Well worth the trip to see the old aircraft.

Was well done. Much better than I had expected with the exhibits holding my interest, my wife interest, and keeping my young kids occupied.
