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.

Great place to see some of aviation history. Children get to interact with planes, which allows their imagination to soar! great family outing great fun and a good place for the children and adults to learn some thing about the planes that protected Canada.

I have been there twice. The last time was last year - I was checking out the museum before going to a food truck event by the Blatchford airport tower. The Aviation Museum offers so much to anyone to learn more about Alberta in their...More

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.
