Authentic selection of Canadian military aircrafts and their history. Very educational!! Wether with family, kids or friends, anybody who's barely interested in aircraft would be impressed by what the museum has to offer! Very kind staff and the facility is very clean!! I'm giving this a 4* because guests have no access to the inside of not even one aircraft.... More

We were told by our hotel that it was free but this was not true. Family pass was $25.00 for two adults and three kids and additional adults were $10.00 each. There seemed to be a lot of empty show cabinets. The outside area where there are several planes was also closed. It might had been due to the weather.... More

Great place to take the kids for a few hours. Kids enjoyed being able to view the planes indoors and out .

This place offers the kids a nice hands on opportunity to see the planes and dress up in uniforms. The kids learned a lot about the airforce from the past until now. A very unique experience for the whole family.

The food is catered in and is always superb - especially for a crowd. Delicious choices, the meals are always served at least warm, if not hot.

I've been there several times. It's a great place to take people who have a great interest in aircraft. Not so much for people (like relatives) who have zero interest in aircraft. Nothing there for them but complete and utter boredom - especially if the weather is cool, wet and/or windy. It's a great place for air and car shows... More

This museum is a gem. Small, easy to get around. Good parking. The airpark has many static display aircraft of all vintages. The Halifax Bomber in the main museum is the centrepiece of the museum, and deservedly so. It is free, but visitors should make an appropriate donation. The shop sells books, clothing and other articles. Staff are nearly all... More

The museum was clean and spacious. We went in the beginning of January so it wasn't busy at all. The bomber in the middle of the floor is definitely impressive. In the corner there are multiple "simulators" for kids and adults to see. There's a section where kids and adults can try on old uniforms also. And for those who... More

Something to interest everyone, very interesting displays with lots of interaction allowed. The museum was free but I believe there will be a cost in the future. More displays added all the time. The outdoor walkway is a nice place to reflect on the beauty of the aircraft and the human cost of conflict.

If you are visiting the Quinte (Trenton/Belleville) area and have a couple hours to spare, you can wander around this spacious hall of exhibits and see displays of aviation artifacts that exhibit Canada's military history of the air. There are displays that cater to just about everyone's interest - from the real restored Second World War Halifax bomber to some... More
