This place is a small locally run museum ,where a few people put a lot of work into , for the enjoyment of many. There are loads of things to see it you spend a little time looking. Also there is the only existing example of a Handley Page Hampden bomber, so where else are you going to be able to see that again?
Nice friendly helpful staff. Well done.

This is a small aviation museum compared to the one in Seattle. However this museum receives virtually no government funding and is almost completely staffed by volunteers. The volunteers are the heart and soul of this place - it's amazing how passionate and committed they are.

One of their biggest expenses is keeping several of the aircraft flying. Very few museums have airworthy airplanes. Members can sponsor the airplanes and go for rides. This is a most amazing experience - just imagine what your Grandfather or family members went through during war time.

You might think you can zip through in an hour or so, but if you dig around a little bit and talk to the volunteers you will find some amazing artifacts. I've stayed and read through the displays for hours and recently became a member so I could keep coming back. There is so much historical significance here.

This is a very unique facility and deserves additional funding and assistance.

I hope to hold my wedding there next year - as the hangar is a wonderfully unique place for special events. The cafe there is excellent too.

On the surface this modest sized museum may appear to be a static collection of old planes, equipment, and memorabilia. Only by delving deeper will you be enlightened by the historical significance of the displays and bygone era at the time.

My family, and I visited the Canadian Museum of Flight on a family field trip on a Monday during the day(pro-D day for our children's school). It was really nice having the place mostly to ourselves as we were told the weekends are busy. The layout of the museum is outstanding, and very well thought out. The planes that are outside to view are extremely interesting, and the signing is very informative. Unfortunately it had just previously rained, and we were unable to sit in some of the planes that they usually have open to the pubic to experience. The engines are unbelievable, and if you know what your looking at you will appreciate the effort that was made to create these fantastic pieces of machinery. Inside the museum in the hanger artifacts, and planes are everywhere from top to bottom. Take your time, and read the interesting facts, missions, people who beat the odds, and models of periods of aviation history. My husband, and I will return without children, so we can have a more detailed informational visit on our own account. The children also enjoy it. A restaurant is available at the airport.
