    This Warplane Museum is amazing. I have attended many times on Scouts sleepovers and found the volunteer staff really bring the past alive for kids to understand the sacrifices of war and these awesome planes.

    To be able to touch history or see it in person is an awesome experience. My father worked on ww.2 aircrafts during the war like the Avro Lancaster, Spitfire, Hurricane and Tempest and afterwards returned to Ontario to be a police constable. As a young child I was fascinated with these handsome airplanes of that era and did many plastic model kits. Residing in Ontario for a short time, I had the pleasure of seeing these historic planes and would highly recommend it as a tourist attraction. We enjoy our freedoms today, as Canadians including newcomers...Read More

    Not for kids. Waste of time and money. Expensive admission.

    From the start of my wedding journey, until the very end the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum guided me and helped me through every aspect of my special day. Christine, Laren, and Cathy are all very wonderful women, thank you so much for all your help. The food was amazing - even though we were late getting to dinner (just soooo many opportunities for great photos in there!) the atmosphere is unlike any other and even though my DJ forgot the lighting, Christine and staff went out of their way and found some extra lighting they had for us.

    Love...Read More

    Mostly a hangar with lots of cool ww2 era planes, you cannot go inside any, except one dummie for pictures. We drove 5hrs to go see the B17 on special event and when we get there they were doing flights so you got to see it approach and leave on the tarmac, nothing more. (because of the money they charge for flights, who cares for the 12$ visitor) Even tho the CBC and their own website was clear that you can come and get an inside look and do the tour for an extra 4$, nothing, too bad. Museum is nice, probably spent an hour top. Has a toddler play...Read More

We enjoy our freedoms today, as Canadians including newcomers because of the heroic sacrafices of our brave soldiers during ww1 & ww2 including those behind the action. Thank you, many take that for granted; especially those who migrate here from other lands.

Museum is nice, probably spent an hour top. Has a toddler play pad, some jet engines, many training planes with no guns. Lancaster is cool to see, but too bad they have no staff to let you sit or look in planes. But they are all functioning and you can see the repair bay. All in all not worth a drive, but if you;re in Hamilton, why not. 3/5 stars
