  • Great Museum with lots of interesting exhibits. Kid friendly, with lots of interactive sections as well. My personal highlight is definitely the "space station". Other aircraft's are sorted by decades and time periods. Lots of information and material to read, so that you can easily spend several hours here. Highly recommended.
  • Came to Ottawa to visit only to find the place is closed
