The aviation museum is conveniently located at Edmonton's old downtown airport. It contains a large collection of vintage and veteran civil and military aircraft dating back to the 1920's and ranging from old biplanes to supersonic jet fighters. The museum is well worth visiting.

this place was a stop on our whirlwind tour of tourist Edmonton. We really enjoyed walking through the museum - it took about 55 minutes total, roughly 10 minutes longer than the lovely lady at the front desk had suggested was the average. The place is getting run down but it still contains a considerable amount of interesting information and... More

This is a great museum with a lot great artifacts! In an old WWII (/) era hanger, the aircraft are laid out in a chronological order. They are well preserved and well displayed. If there is a volunteer around, you may get to sit in one of the fighter aircraft! The gift shop is decent and the staff are friendly.... More

Nice old float planes, a few you can sit in and have a look as to how it was back in the early 1900's. Some military planes, nice history write ups by each airplane, many are from local Alberta. Nice gift shop, well worth seeing this museum

There is not a better place in Edmonton to spend an afternoon with your family; and the people who work here create a family of their own.....they are so welcoming, kind and knowledgable! This space on Kingsway houses Aviation and history from the past lovingly restored by volunteers. My husband- a former small plane pilot loved it and my little... More

Even from outside, the planes and displays are worth stopping by to revisit our aviation history. Inside the hanger is even better, with real history buffs, some of them part of history themselves. It made me proud to be a Canadian with all the awesome stories. It's easy access, not too big for children to be interested and very well... More

Loved the planes in the museum and their plaques were informative; however, if you get the change to talk to some of the gentlemen that work here you will acquire so much more knowledge. I cannot remember the gentleman's name but he was amazing to talk to. You could tell that airplanes was something he loved. When we take our... More

This place is small but interesting and overpriced. (No veteran discount) They have two helicopter game that don't work and two flight simulators that do not work. The staff is friendly however, this is not buy any means in the top ten list of good museums. Which is why I only gave it a two star rating. I hope they... More
