Started with a great welcome/introduction by the greeter, explaining the history of the museum. Great variety of aircraft showing the history of the nearby airbase. Very interesting, and very well done. Would defiantly come back!

Lots of parking, handy venue. If you are a flying enthusiast you will definitely enjoy the aircraft stationed here at the museum. A favorite spot for all especially the kids. Hopefully one day the air show will come back.

Best little Aviation Museum east of Montreal. Young and old can climb aboard some of the exhibits for a hands on experience. Not that many people seem to know about it. A whole lot of East Coast Aviation history, tucked away in this museum.
