“Interesting and Friendly”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Great history of Canada's aviation past and a chance to see some truly remarkable and rare vintage flying machines. Knowledgeable and friendly tour guides (hi Gerry!) will walk you through it with interesting stories if you wish, or you can do it yourself at your own pace. A chance to see some lovely planes if planes are your thing and if not, why not!?! The museum's moderately priced and has a cute gift shop in the lobby as well, full of aviation related goodies. Definitely a decent way to spend a rainy Sunday. Also the Air Canada Viscount is my favourite! Go sit on it and pretend you're on Mad Men. :)

“Great museum about Canadian Aviation”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Lots of history of Canada's early aviation history. Bush planes are the unsung heros (behind fighter jets and spacecraft) the significantly impacted life in the Canadian north. Gerry was a great guide. He added life and connection to the exhibits and the history of the museum building itself (first terminal in Winnipeg. Well worth the trip.

“Great kids area and interesting!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I spent most of the time in the kids area with my almost 2 year old and 4 1/2 year old. They loved it and kept asking to go back during the rest of our stay. My husband took the tour and enjoyed the history and unique aircraft. So glad we stopped by!

“Great Tour”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

My boyfriend and I had a great tour today by a wonderful interpreter named Gerry. He was knowledgable, witty, and full of energy. It was great to have a guide who was so passionate about what he does. The site is packed with old planes, and you can even go inside some! After we were done the tour we went up to the look out to watch all the planes take off. A great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
