My husband and I visited the warplane museum on Saturday morning. It opens at 9am and that's when we arrived. At a cost of $13 it's a great way to spend a Saturday. We started in a room filled with pictures and objects from the wars. It was factual and very well laid out. The most amazing find was the... More

It is a great place to learn history and see planes of are past. Have a beautiful selection of plane from all over Canada history. By far my favorite is the Afro Lancaster mk 10 and definitely when they are starting up the Packard Merlin engines. Its a great place for family and for school.

I enjoy the visit with my kids. One can learn about the important contribution of Canadian Air Force during the World Wars, learn about planes, and be a pilot for a short period of time. It was fun!

The men and women who work here are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Love listening to their stories and looking at these amazing aircrafts. Especially loved the recent Anne Frank exhibit--would love to see more of that.

The Canadian warplane heritage Museum by Hamilton Airport on Mount Hope is definitely worth a visit. I took two of my Grandchildren and it was very enjoyable for me and them. Cost of entry is reasonable and covers, seniors, teens, children and a family option. The static displays in the entrance museum walk through are very good and the hanger... More

This museum is a vibrant treasure that gives in so many dimensions. Yes, on a straightforward level, it's about old airplanes, but the reason they are there is what you will come to understand. Yes, the technology is interesting, but WHY they came to be, is the best reason to take the kids. They need to meet the older folks... More
