I just happened to hear about this museum and wanted to check it out. WOW-what a selection of refurbished war planes and a great overview of what the airforce personal had to work with-just can't imagine fighting a war in some of those planes. The...More

This is a good choice for attending the Remembrance Day commemorations on Nov 11th. They will usually do a Fly-by with several of the aircraft. And you can walk out onto the tarmac and view the aircraft afterwards. Of course there are the inside aircraft...More

What a cool environment to have the exhibitor booths and celebrities intermingled with the planes! The displays were awe-inspiring!

Great for kids, learning - and aviation lovers of all kinds. The Lancaster is obviously the gem of the collection, but a great variety of planes and history to see.

Kids will love this, the kid in you will allow you to ask the adult questions and yet still feel a thrill. There are educational sessions for the little ones, plus a plethora of reading for us adults. A hidden gem really.

I'm doing a project at school for George "Buzz" Beurling and I was just wondering if you could send something to my teacher so I could put it in my project. Please do not send something I would be paying for , as my teacher would prefer us not to buy anything. Address: 1434 80 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6K 2C6 (Dan Knott School)

There is a Buzz Beurling stature at the Warplane Museum. He was, indeed, one of the best pilots that Canada produced during WW2. He had the keen ability to track and then shoot enemy aircraft using a very old technique... More

What is the best public transport option for getting to the museum from downtown Toronto

Response from Sandy P | Reviewed this property |
The HSR has a bus route that goes by the Museum to the airport next door but service is hourly and I'M not sure how late it goes. You could check the HSR website. Apart from that a taxi would be a good alternative.
