Overview
More
For more than 80 years, Edmonton’s Blatchford Field was the center of a bustling aviation community that spurred the growth of the city, the region, and the North. Hundreds of men and women let their dreams take flight from this historic airfield, flying everything from biplanes to bush planes, bombers to jets. The museum, located in the last remaining double-long, double-wide hangar from the World War II era, is committed to keeping that aviation heritage alive by sharing their stories, offering education programs, and providing new and exciting opportunities for families to explore Edmonton’s rich aviation history.

This visit was great. I was very surprised how big the building was and how many planes were in it. It was a very informative experience for me.

Summing up the history of airplanes, this museum must be visited so that you realise how much effort was put on to creating bigger aircrafts, really impressive

Definitely i recommend this place. You can sit on a real fighter Jet plane ! There are many flights to see around. But not much activities that you can participate. Good place for kids, teens, families and elderly peoples.
