We live near the base, and go to the museum at least a few times a month. The parking and entrance are free, although there is a donation box in the gift shop. The gift shop is full of some pretty neat things, and our little guy always ends up with something cool. The displays are great for hardcore and casual aviation enthusiasts alike. Lots of military memorabilia, of course, but there are also random bits of civilian aircraft and displays. The Halifax bomber is really something special to see, it's been beautifully restored. The staff that are kicking around usually have lots of good info if you talk to them as well. It's pretty quiet in there most days, and the newer part, especially the upstairs, can feel a little barren, but they're currently working on changing things around to make more sense. Definitely have a visit, it's pretty neat. You're not allowed to bring drinks or food inside, except bottled water. There is a little snack area with a vending machine for pop and snacks, but there's also a Tim Horton's right across the road.

Being a Trentonian and a Historian, I have had the pleasure of visiting the National Air Force Museum since its inception. I witnessed its growth from a solitary room in a hangar 20 years ago to its present form as a informative indoor and outdoor exhibition. The visitor is taken through the years of our nation's Air Force and it's development. Inside an expansive building are exhibits, pictures and models of aircraft used by our forces. To top off the indoor displays is a rebuilt Halifax Bomber found in a Norwegian Lake. Volunteers will direct you and explain the various exhibits. Outside is a large Plane Park with a collection of actual aircraft mothballed for this museum. The only drawback of this wonderful museum is the lack of dining facilities.

Love the outdoor display and the museum. Took my grandkids they were enthralled. The Airplane display is excellent. The display on the great escape gives depth to the movie.
