We visited on Father's Day and they had many special events- car show, helicopter rides, models, robot making for kids. It was neat to see the young people in their air cadet uniforms, helping to host the displays. We learned some interesting things about Canadian...More

As an aeronautic fan this is a GREAT collection. If you plan to attend with younger folks (not so much) unless you go on fathers' day - more attention to interactive openings. The collection is absolutely TOP NOTCH and excellent in presentation. They will have...More

We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit! We are certainly planning to introduce more interactive elements, as it is inspiring to see children's eyes light up when they see our aircraft, and we want to make it an even better experience for them....More

The Hangar Flight Museum (formerly the Aero Space Museum of Calgary), like its counterparts in Victoria and Winnipeg, provides a nice overview of Canadian innovations in aviation, with specific emphasis on Western Canada.

Pretty nice to have in the city but I find it's not interactive enough for kids. We saw a mock-up cockpit that my son would have loved but it was half hidden away and apparently only available on Father's Day...weird. I realize that kids COULD...More

Not world-class, but still a worthwhile collection of airplanes from the past. Lots of connections to Alberta's history.

Every year, we visit the Hangar Flight Museum and experience the guts and glory of the Flying Legends. It is like a step back in time. The Museum's collection includes many historically significant airplanes that span the entire century of Canadian flight. Visitors from seniors...More
