We tell our stories through: self-guided or interpreter-led tours of the main exhibition hall, aviation hangar and warehouse, hands-on programs, audio-visual presentations, artifact demonstrations, an award-winning reference centre, restoration and conservation shops, and special events. From May to September, visitors can enjoy free vintage vehicle and midway rides. Open cockpit biplane rides are offered on weekends (weather permitting) at a cost of $75.00 for two people.
