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

We are a family of seven and all our kids enjoyed this outing. We found the volunteers very helpful and more than willing to answer our multitude of questions. The Anne Frank exhibit was on display for our visit. We found this very educational and informative for both us as adults and for our children.

I have been to the museum a number of times ( and even for a wedding). This particular visit was a toddlers first time. The staff was friendly and he enjoyed the planes a lot. Interesting to see what the latest projects are. The majority of planes do not change, but it is always nice to go see what is... More

* Mind Blown * for my 3yr old boy. Kids get to sit in cockpits play with controls . Great! Gift shop has lots of toys and trinkets for young kids. Definitely coming back with some friends to do the Dog fighting simulator!

We love the planes and my son and his friend have been here numerous times. As they get older they see and appreciate different things.
