A real hidden treasure in Hamilton !! This is one of those places that you have to at one time go and visit. Great static displays and passionate people who are involved in the restoration of older aircraft. Lots of history and a chance to ride in either the "Lanc" Lancaster bomber or perhaps a B-25 Mitchell. Our friend from... More

My grandsons will go there three or four times a year, they never get bored. They come home every time with a new airplane from the gift shop. Great for family outings. You can tell the staff take pride in the museum. I would highly recommend.

It's a fun way to spend an afternoon if you're a plane enthusiast.....you can contact them ahead of time to see if you can 'charter' a ride on one of the older planes....sometimes it's available, sometimes not.

Easy to get to. Home of one of only two operating Lancaster bombers. Nice clean and interesting facility. Volunteers work on restoring wartime era plane that you can view.

Children as well as adults are always fascinated with flight and the history behind these wonderful aircraft that are stored at the museum. One of my sons is an aviation technician and has been an admirer of planes since he was a teenager! He is always a... More

Great place to revist the Canadian war effort. Also a great location for catered events. Our daughter had her wedding reception there, with the head table placed right below the Lancaster. Balance of guest could visit the other exhibits guided by some vets. Great occasion.

Very well run museum. Modest size but collection is good, staff is outstanding. Very helpful and clearly dedicated. Very kid friendly, a kids birthday party was going on during my visit in their canteen. Great gift shop, many unusual items I've not seen elsewhere. Check out their event calendar
