My husband and I enjoy the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum so much! The history is amazing and if you a chance on those very special days to tour the Lancaster - do it! Not only does the donation provide ongoing support for the mechanic but brings much needed awareness to a period of time that nobody should forget!

We took our grandson's aged 7 and 5 to the museum and they both enjoyed it. When we entered the museum and looked at the displays the boys were very interested to hear about family members who had served in the war and they carefully looked over all of the memorabilia. After spending about 15 minutes looking at the displays... More

Amazing gem in Hamilton! Tours given by volunteers with a wealth of knowledge. Lots of planes to view and flights available with membership. Tremendous amount of historical information. Excellent event rooms available too.

Had a fun family time with our 3 children. A lot of hands on fun experiences for adults and children alike. A lot of history and information. Plenty of displays to enjoy! Highly recommend this when looking for something different to do

My husband and me finally decided to check out the Canadian Warplane Heritage museum after living nearby for many years. It was not disappointing if you like planes and historical facts. Children from the Centre where i use to work visited the Warplane Museum and were so impressed with their tour guides and the planes they were able to sit... More

I attended the November 11th memorial day service at the museum. It would be wonderful if everyone had the opportunity to experience and understand what impact the wars had on our country, our people and our future. The museum is a wonderful place to see all kinds of older 'war time' planes. The display is amazing and offers the chance... More

My husband is the plane enthusiast so when we came here, I was expecting a rather dry and boring museum. I was pleasantly surprised and found myself enjoying the experience. There is a small section with history and displays but what you really come here for is to look at the planes. The selection here is not as big as... More
