Lots of Canadian history here. Saw & learned many things about the RCAF & info about Halifax 911 involvement, my teenagers loved it. We dropped in for a quick visit & stayed a few hours.

The exhibits are well presented. They are of particular interest for older folks such as myself because I remember when planes flew from what is now called Shearwater.I used to crawl under the fence to the edge of the runway to watch Lancasters take off right over my head.

Took my boys here for a visit. We ended up staying most of the day. Good displays of lots of great planes and helicopters, well taken care of and lovingly restored. Lots of things to touch. Very important for 10 and 8 year olds. Great staff with lots of knowledge. We met a great vetran navy flier he gave us a "private tour". It was empty and we had the whole place to ourselves. I loved the biplanes. Totally worth a trip to view our military past.
