Even just a few years ago one of the most interesting attractions of the city of Toronto was considered to be the Canadian Museum of flight and space (until 2009, the official name is the Aerospace Museum of Toronto). The Museum was located in Downsview Park in the spacious hangar, where once housed the production of the famous British aircraft company De Havilland Aircraft Company, and then the station of the Royal canadian air force and a Military base in Toronto.

In the exhibition of the Canadian Museum of aviation and space you could see the bomber, Avro Lancaster, a full-scale copy of the fighter-interceptor Avro Arrow, biplane Tiger Moth, Grumman Tracker, a copy of the first canadian artificial Earth satellite - Alouette 1, as well as original equipment used for the construction of a training biplanes of the Curtiss JN-4 "Jenny" in 1917-1918, flight simulators and simulators, exhibits connected with the history of air force base Downsview, and more.

20 Sep 2011 the Canadian Museum of flight and space received an eviction notice in connection with a huge arrears of rent. Unfolded immediately after that a large-scale company in support of the Museum with the assistance of the General public has not produced results, and the Museum was forced to leave the hangar in Downsview Park. Unfortunately, today the Museum failed to acquire the new premises. The Museum's exhibits that are in storage in warehouses at the International airport Toronto Pearson international.
