I brought my 4, 8, and 13 year kids there in PD day. It was great for all of them. The elder tried 40 min. training session in the "Air Combat Zone". The instructor was very kind and sincere. The training was recommended for 10+, but younger ones could enjoy a flying simulator - a simpler version. The volunteers were so nice and ready for answering your questions. The canteen was quite good. The museum may be small but was filled with the "real" things.
I came here once when I was maybe around 11 (didn't appreciate it much then) but came here twice as an adult - probably about 15 and 13 years ago and thought it was cool and informative. I had a friend who lives in the States and this was one of the places he wanted to see the first time he came to Hamilton...he loved it, and when he came to Hamilton a couple years later to visit and brought his oldest 2 kids we came back. His kids seemed to enjoy it, we all did...we seemed to find more information we didn't see/remember from before. I'd like to come back again soon
Wonderful place filled with history. I've been to a few museums of this type and I've never been this up close to the planes...that definitely made this museum stand out from any other I've been to. While you have to keep your hands off of the planes, you can stand right up next to them...makes you feel welcome and trusted & gives you even more of an appreciation for these magnificent machines.
This place is amazing! All the tour guides explain things clearly. You also have a chance to go in a actual plane, there are also flight simulators. I recommend this place, you can also see a really rare plane called the Lancaster. There are only two in this WORLD!! And the one in this museum is one of them!
Amazing place. The volunteers are so incredible, they made us feel like we were the only ones in the museum that day. I loved hearing the stories of all the planes and quirky encounters with museum goers. This place has a lot of heart and such kind people working there. We will be back 😊
