This was an amazing trip for my young children and I. I’ve always been fascinated with aviation and even though I’ve watched so many documentaries over the years, seeing the planes in real life is priceless. Like I didn’t know a fighter jet was that huge! The exhibits are rich with history, very well documented with tons of interesting facts via with plaques and signs. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly, they will even allow you to get into a few of the planes which was fun for the kiddos. To top it off, there is a whole section dedicated to Canada’s contribution to Space exploration (which was new to me), Go Chris Hadfield! I highly recommend going if you have kids, regardless of their interests. Oh, and you can do airplane and helicopter tours… but you have to book ahead of time. So we plan to visit again just for this! Had a great time, highly recommend. . Also pro tip for locals. If you’re from Ottawa or Eastern Ontario, you may request the museum pass from your local library for free entry for up to 2 adults + 2 kids! 🙂
Very nice exhibits of planes and the space section is interesting!! Some of the interactive displays are still closed due to covid. They offer biplane ride for 40$ and everyday 4 to 5pm, the admission is free. You have to pre book the time slot even if it is free admission.The parking fee is 3$ for an hour and 8$ for full day. I think the parking revenue is there to support kids programming in the museum. Nice place to visit if you really love planes!!!
This museum is the perfect destination for anyone who has a fascination with aviation, aerospace and air technology. What sets this museum apart is its collection of real exponents. Visitors have the opportunity to get up close and personal with real planes and even sit inside some of them, which is an experience not to be missed. The museum is well-organized and provides a comprehensive learning experience with displays that cover the evolution of aircraft from its early prototypes to the latest space robots. The amount of information that is available is impressive, and you will leave the museum feeling much more knowledgeable about this fascinating subject. The free tour guide on-site is an excellent addition, and visitors can benefit from the museum staff's expertise and in-depth knowledge. This ensures a memorable visit, and it is a fantastic way to learn history in a fun and interactive way. Overall, the museum is an incredible experience and is suitable for people of all ages. You will never forget this memorable experience, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in aviation and space exploration.
Awesome place! Kept the history of flights in order to show the evolution. Most amazing part was the space section. Not very kid worthy though. But still if your kid likes plane or space this is a place you can go and enjoy.
If you are interested in aviation or the air force this is a great place to visit. The displays are informative and there is a tie-in with the development of nationhood. Recommend spending a few hours...be sure to wear comfortable shoes. You can also take a biplane tour of the Ottawa area from the skies! My brother and I did that last year...well worth the money!
