Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum - Review
Where else will you be able to touch and feel 36 military jets, propeller driven aircraft and helicopters- all under one roof? The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum is like a candy store for aviation enthusiasts. Home to many world war and cold war airplanes that have served in these legendary battles, these machines are immaculately maintained and many are in flying condition. There are fighter aircrafts on display, along side trainer airplanes, jet fighters, bombers and anti-submarine aircrafts too. There are summer workshops and camps held for kids here too. What’s more, you can even get the opportunity to fly in the rare Fairey Firefly, Westland Lysander or the famous Avro Lancaster if you become a member of the museum.

Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, Hamilton Reviews
Been want to visit the museum for a while and finally did. Was great little trip in the past. The day we visited the Lancaster was up flying, watched it taxi onto the tarmac outside the facility. Enjoy a tasty lunch in the cafeteria. The staff are very knowledgeable about the planes. One volunteer spent lots of time talking with us and showing my son the planes. If you or a family member are interested in planes and history this is good place to visit.
Had our wedding here, the venue was AMAZING, and they kept staff on hand to help our guests experience the planes. Guests still talk about it to this day, and surprisingly not as expensive as I thought it would be to rent a hangar. ProTip: Get a proper DJ that understands large rooms and how to properly setup the room for sound. Your run of the mill DJ might only have experience working in smaller rooms. That said, the lady that worked with us, it was her first time, and during the reception she interrupted us a few times for things she should really have gone to the best man/maid of honor for, that kind of distracted from our night.
My son took the 1 week summer camp program and loved it so much. That we signed him up again this summer! The staff and volunteers are amazing with the kids. The museum is full of interesting artifacts rich in history of aviation. However the best part is all the incredible airplanes. I highly recommend this museum to everyone who enjoys history and airplanes.👍👍 😊🛩️✈️
Really interesting and great place to go if you are looking for something to do indoors. Reasonably priced coffee shop/eatery on site. Can get up close to the planes and loads of information available. Very impressed.
We enjoyed the personal tour from this gentleman so much. So very Canadian polite and informative! His personal touch even impressed my daughter surprisingly. Great inventory of diverse aircraft. Most of the aircraft had an interesting story. Thank you so much.
