  • There is a lot of hands on and you can have a great time with your children or grandchildren. Mr. Lowry was very attentive to detail. I believe that his father was in the air force during the war.  more »

  • Took my family here today and it was awesome! My 2.5 y old son was excited from the moment he saw the first model plane hanging from the ceiling and once he sat in the tutor jet he wanted to sit in everything.. but so did I. We had a nice guy show us around the hole place and explain everything with detail to us. Amazing and inexpensive place to take ur kids to show them the glory days of our aerospace industry. Canada has built so many great planes that accomplished so many great things; and there history should never be forgotten. I will try and return whenever I come to the Toronto area
  • If your looking to see a lot of WW2 planes and some earlier planes this it the place to come. Its in Hamilton Ontario and have a very nice collection of aircraft that you can actually see and walk around up close and personal. They have handicap parking and the entire viewing area is all on one floor in a very large hanger at the Hamilton airport off of highway 6 south. They also have a very well stocked cafeteria on location and every time I've been there has been open but you might want to call to see if it's open when you go here.
  • I visited today with my 13 year old son. Both of us were very impressed with the exhibits and planes. A lot of Canadian Air Force war effort information that is easy to follow and understand. Passionate and enthusiastic volunteers! We plan to go back to watch some flights and spend more time looking at the planes, studying the information.
  • I lived nearby this place most of my life and always said I would go but never did. Then I retired and moved to Alberta and I have been here 3 times since and am coming again around Christmas 2017. It is a great place to visit, always worth the price of admission and then some. I will visit every time I am back in Ontario, can't get enough.
  • Amazing to be able to see and touch these planes and learn about war time efforts. Great remembrance day ceremony. Well planned and very well attended. Thanks to all who put this together to show our veterans we appreciate everything they did and we will not forget.
