Love this place, was there for a company event but would absolutely recommend a visit if you like airplanes or history or both or just like museums in general. Admission is free daily between 4-5 pm which I think is awesome ! They've got some WWII planes, some first gen planes made out of wood.. it's a super cool museum.
Really enjoyed seeing all of the planes and aviation equipment. It's a great time to go if you're into planes, engineering, or seeing the kinds of tin cans people were willing to get into and fly. The flight over the city really nice. Just make sure to get their goggles. Don't wear just your own glasses, otherwise you'll be spending most of the ride making sure they don't get blown away.
This museum is a very interesting place to visit in Ottawa, for adults and kids as well. It relates the evolution of aviation aeronautics and space sciences. Many new exhibits each year. You can also try helicopter, biplane, CESSNA plane tours, try flight simulators and have an idea about civil and military use of planes and other related technologies. Great museum.
I always love it here. My son is two and a half years old and he can't get enough of it. Always interesting, always Interactive and lots of things to do. I only wish that parking was free. The little cafe might also consider offering more child-friendly options.
Nice place for an educational family outing with kids. Has quite a few activities for kids like fight simulator, space station simulation among others. In addition it offers 4 pm to 5 pm as free hour for all. Parking is also affordable.
