Go in the warmer months as the old planes don't fly in the winter. See one of the two remaining Lancasters that are still airworthy.

Very good experience for children and adults.We had a blast and the boys learned a lot about the war plane and every other plane they have in the museum. We play games and the kids tryout how it's feel sitting in some of old planes.

I've been here many times! Love the history in the aircrafts and info posted. Love the knowledgeable & helpful staff. Great offerings in the gift shop. Have even been with young children when they've hosted family fun day in Feb with bouncy castles etc, and the airplanes were great for kids pictures & starting their learning. The fact they are...

This place is a good place to visit if you just want to see some interesting old planes on a rainy or sunny day. Me and my brother got to sit in a old blue plane acting like pilots. The only thing I don't like about this place is that it can get boring at times. The planes are like... More

The Museum is OK, if you like aircraft, but the staff are truly terrible especially the Media Manager. Their airshows are expensive and truly not worth the price.

You would need to watch the Hamilton Spectator for dates. As well the wood working show is held in the same building giving access to see the war planes while killing... More

Grandsons were able to sit in the cockpit of a small plane where we took their pictures. Awesome collection of planes.

As a longtime volunteer at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, I may be a wee bit biased but perhaps my unique inside opinion will be helpful. CWHM is worth a visit anytime but it is best seen in the summer months when our many flying aircraft are active. In the winter months be sure to check our website to ensure... More
