A really nice museum, lots of planes, a good introduction to the history of Canadian air force and what makes it special is the fact that in the museum they are restoring old planes and you can see the process. Many volunteers around who love to explain things.

Visited with a small group of men and was fortunate to have volunteer guide to show us around. Marveled at the number of planes/exhibits. Unbelievable that such a collection has been put together by so many volunteers.

It's a nice place for who loves airplanes or for who just like to have more information about the war. In both cases it's better to have a guided tour.

I love seeing the Lancaster flying over town. We are so lucky to have this plane. When it is on, it is well worth seeing the Hamilton air show at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum too. It often runs ever other Father's day weekend.

Easy to find with plenty of parking. Entrance was $12pp. The museum begins with a display relating to Canadian Aviators, and the various wars before you move into the aircraft hangar. There was a limited time display of art work telling stories of the Canadian War Brides who married Australasian's and British and emigrated. The stories were carved into wood,... More

Excellent museum, really hands-on...I didn't have kids with me but there was a school trip there and the kids were having a blast. I loved the comprehensive information...there displays that I didn't expect, but did appreciate...like the one on women's contributions to WW2.

A nice facility for aviation buffs. Lots of aircraft, although period seems to be a little limited. Seem to have made some effort lately to allow a little more interaction with the exhibits, if I can believe previous reviews. I was there for about 45 minutes and had had s quick scout around and couldn't find the prized exhibit, the... More

This is the best collection of warplanes in Canada and perhaps anywhere. The planes on display all still fly and if you live nearby you will frequently see them up in the air, stretching their wings. The museum is also a restoration and maintenance facility. The Lancaster is definitely the star but there are many other noteworthy planes to visit.... More
