  • We had a lovely time at the aviation museum, my husband enjoyed seeing all of the original planes. The tour guide we had, Elizabeth, was exceptional - I definitely recommend taking the free tours if you're like me and know nothing about planes. We also did the family flight, which was $40pp and a must do! They fly over the city and you get a great view of the lovely city.
  • Fabulous museum. You can see a Snowbird at the front entry. It was interesting to see planes that we never knew they even existed. You can go outside and watch planes taking off and landing. Also you can book a bi-plane ride and they can choose between two routes. There is also a space part that it is very good too! Staff were welcoming and helpful.
