At the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum, families spend the day weaving through a sprawling collection of over 130 aircrafts, interactive displays, and myriad artifacts that illuminate the history of aviation during both peacetime and war. Walking across the museum floor, visitors can internalize collections showcasing the worldwide evolution of flight and significant Canadian aviation achievements, from the time planes began hatching from clouds in 1909 to the present day. Marvel at a McDowall Monoplane designed and built in Canada during aviation's pioneer era, or photograph the cockpit of a Noorduyn Norseman VI, a model that cut across skies to ferry cargo during the Second World War. Museum-goers can tag along on tours as they are announced throughout the day or visit the museum during one of its weekend activities, such as the ejection-seat demonstration, included with general admission. After wandering across the museum floor, those with a new appreciation for gravity’s fickle moods can fuel up at the on-site café, nibble sandwiches at the picnic area, or flap their arms to float across the museum shop's collection of aviation-themed models, toys, and videos.
