Bomber Command Museum of Canada reviews
We were just driving through and saw the Museum so decided to stop in. Glad we did. Will be back to visit during non-Covid restrictions given some parts were roped off because of it. Great items for..... more »
I'm a sort of history buff and I like stories about WWII. This museum in Nanton is the best place to see a Lancaster Bomber. You can even go inside. Amazing. more »
Highly recommended for all ages. Really amazing historical pieces here. Everyone, including my 4 year old son loved it.
Worth a stop by, interesting exhibits to see, donation entry as this is supported by volunteers, if you can go when they have the bomber outside in the summer and see the engines run that's a great experience too.
