  • Came here with my young nephew to see the planes. It's a great museum. The vast majority of the planes are from the World War 2 era, but there are others from earlier and later periods as well. Quite ...  more »

  • It was incredible seeing all these war planes restore to their former glory especially the Lancaster Bomber. It was really cool to talk to all the guys restoring the planes as well.  more »

  • Front Staff members are nice to all types of ethnicity. The war planes are well kept up. The Museum is roughly two hangers in size and plenty of free parking. It's adjacent to the airport which make using the observation deck in the spring/summer awesome (when the airport is at its peak). *The museum in some places could be upgraded or modernize the look & feel. But u should still go, trust me.
  • 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 love seeing all these bits and pieces from the past. There are a couple planes you can climb up onto which was so exciting for me. Went with a friend who's dad is a pilot and for all sorts of crazy info!
  • Wow. What a place. Some one of a kind planes here. Home of the Lancaster Bomber. Only 2 left that are air worthy on the planet. Worth the visit.
