    The freedom in which you are allowed to walk around, under, and above these planes is great. While not all were flown in WW2, it is amazing the size and scope of the warplanes, and the hanger itself. ...  more »

    I've been here about 20 times spanning from 2005 to now. Always amazing service here and maintenance on the planes. I love all of the guides here and they are very knowledgeable and friendly. Past and present air shows always impressed me. Keeping the Lancaster flying here puts a big hole through their pocket but they keep trying. These guys are great and I'd highly recommend bringing kids here to learn some history if they are interested in aviation. I'd even recommend donating to the company if you have enough money to because they deserve every dollar and cent you give them!

    Was a little disappointed today (fathers day) I thought they would be putting on an air show but instead it seemed like the just catered to those who would buy a ticket on a plane. You never got to see the planes take off you never got to see the land and when they were in the in the air they seem to have flown as far away as to where the crowd was as possible. The warplane Heritage Museum on a halt is fantastic great staff great display of old planes

    Brought my two-year-old grandson to see the planes. He loved everything about the experience. He was thrilled to be able to sit in the cockpit of the Buffalo. It was a great day. the volunteers are so knowledgeable, friendly and kind to children.

    My hubby, son and I had an absolute blast here! Len C. was an excellent guide - showing and explaining functions of the aircraft and the exciting historical facts and stories behind these marvellous machines. All the staff are super wonderful and attentive. ..would recommend visiting this place at least once...but we will do this yearly 😊

    The ticket was $20, but we enjoy the overall experience. Its worth a visit if you enjoy museum. It isn't as big as the Ontario Rom, however, its a different experience.
