Canadian Museum of Flight in Langley

The Canadian Museum of Flight is a non-profit museum located at the Langley Regional Airport (YNJ) and dedicated to Canadian aviation history. I live in Langley, so naturally Kate and I wanted to visit the museum and share some of the highlights.

Museum Details

The volunteer guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. You can easily spend a few hours there but most people would probably leave in an hour. Young children would like it, but it probably best for middle school kids interested in aviation. There surprisingly cheap gift shop, filled with books and movies (I found DVD of Battle of Britain for my “Best Warplane Movies” post). Overall the Canadian Museum of Flight is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon, if you are interested in aviation history.
