Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Canadian Air & Space Museum (North York)

Family Tested

Shut down!

In 2012, the Canadian Air and Space Museum was evicted along with 10 other tenants from the location it has occupy since 1997 (in the 1929 factory of the aircraft manufacturer The de Havilland Aircraft of Canada). It remains open only for members but not to the public, untilVolunteer staff involved with the Canadian Air & Space Museum were obviously skilled in collecting and restoring artifacts from the aviation heritage of the GTA but I was surprised by their visible effort to exhibit it in an interesting manner to the best of their abilities in their large hangar. You could watch the work-in-progress restoration of the Lancaster, a famous Second World War bomber. Kids loved to see the ejector seat and the cockpit simulator and the rows of real passenger aircraft seats. It remains uncertain that the museum will find a new location soon.
