Wonderful place for people of all ages to learn about our history both in peace time and war. They also have a fabulous collection of planes used for other means of fire fighting and cargo transport. Of course the beauty that many know is 'Vera' the only flying Lancaster bomber in North America and second to the one still being... More

I've only been here once, believe it or not it was for wedding pictures for a wedding that I was in. I think the price to do it was reasonable but I can't remember what was charged. Lots of cool pictures with lots of cool planes. There was an old fire truck that made for some great pictures as well.

So much to do and see here! Love all aspect of flying and piloting airplanes. To see ones from long ago until now and sometime if your lucky you can see really cool airplanes nearby like the Lancaster or even a Stealth or Andropov plane.

We are extremely lucky to have this museum in Hamilton. History stands still here because countless volunteers don't. I could write volumes about this place, but I'll just suggest that if you visit, you will come away knowing you have opened a new chapter in your personal history book. It's not just about airplanes, but more about why we live... More

I like museums in general. Hundreds and thousands of warplanes were built in World War II and very few survive. Here you see and touch the actual planes that were a part of history, and that you see in movies and documentaries. There are biplanes, a Submarine Spitfire, and a repica Hurricanes. Sptifires and Hurricanes won the Battle of Britain... More

My children are both teenagers and they enjoy looking at the airplanes and talking to the Veterans. It is a humbling experience and educational

We took a relative who was visiting from California to see our great treasure The Warplane Heritage in Mount Hope . He was so excited he took over 500 pictures. It was the best time ever a must see.
