The museum is chock full of planes and assorted aviation related collection. It's most prized piece is 1 of 2 remaining (in the whole world) flying Lancaster bomber from WWII. I've been there as a tourist & attended a wedding reception there.

We took our great nephew (14) and great niece (5). Nephew loved to run the car himself and niece was in the car with me. Had to go slow at first and then she wanted to go fast. Fun had by all.

Purchased a wag jag for a day out with my 3 kids during the winter. Kids had a blast seeing the airplanes and getting to go in a few. Highlight was getting to go out on the runway while a plane landed and into a cargo plane. Recommend for a few hours out with the family.

As privately owned museums go, CWHM is about as good it gets. They have a respectable inventory of aircraft, including a number that are maintained in flyable condition. The center piece of the collection is one of only two flyable WWII Lancaster bombers in the world. Guests are able to walk though the hanger area where the aircraft are maintained... More

If you are curious of Air War history or knowledgeable about the same this the place for you. It is fascinating to be so close to history and some of them still fly. I am fortunate to live very close to the airport so very fortunate to see them in the air. When I was young I had the opportunity... More

This museum was easily the most interesting museum I have been to. As soon as we made our way to the hangar, we were greeted by a volunteer. Little did i know she'd be so helpful for the rest of our visit. She guided us to the planes we could sit in and explained the history of each one. She... More

This museum is especially an aviation museum, located right next to the Hamilton International Airport in Hamilton. There are a lot of warplanes on display in a huge hangar. It’s not too crowded and the info in front of every plane is quite interesting! Our guide was quite knowledgeable as well. Outside the hangar are more planes, most of them... More

Do not miss this place. I was hoping that it was well done and I wasn't disappointed. The Canadian contributions to flight in general was well documented and please spend some time reading about the Canadian women and their efforts to be in the industry and war, it makes great reading. The Anne Frank exhibit was also well done. We... More
