We had a wonderful time at the Royal Aviation Museum last weekend. We had a great tour guide as well (Gerry Suski), he was very funny and very informative! Great value too ... $25.00 for the three of us.

Loved our visit here. The whole building could use some funding, but the displays are great and the staff are wonderful if you've a question. Bumped into the right person at the museum who took me an my son inside a couple of the planes. Will be picking up an annual membership to return.

This was more exciting for my husband as he is an aviation enthusiast. Our 5 year old wanted to know all about.

A lot of history to see and hear about. Finding out what the real pilots went through to get their cargo to the people. How the planes were made.
