Great museum, staff very helpful and have detailed knowledge. Well laid out from earliest planes to most recent. Good explanations and history. You can easily loose a few hours! Make sure you pay to park as ticketing very efficient.

This museum has a wide variety of aircraft and is a fun and educational way to spend a few hours in Ottawa. You can get close enough to touch the displays, but don't! Located just a few minutes from downtown.
