Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, Hamilton Reviews - Write a Review
Amazing to be able to see and touch these planes and learn about war time efforts. Great remembrance day ceremony. Well planned and very well attended. Thanks to all who put this together to show our veterans we appreciate everything they did and we will not forget.
I had a great time at the Warplane Museum. The admission was reasonably priced and there is a lot of stuff to see. They have interesting displays on the history of the Air Force in Canada and a good number of planes on display. They also have a place to get food and drinks, they even serve beer. There is also a flight simulator, if you call ahead and book a slot the museum admission is included in the cost of the "mission". It's also close to the Hamilton airport, you could even check it out before a flight.
I've been to many aviation museums, but the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum is exceptional and is now on my must-return list. I could have spent several hours there. The aircraft collection is extremely good, particularly because all but one of the aircraft (that I noted) have Canadian histories. The fact that many of them are in flying condition and rides can be purchased in them blows my mind, and is one of the reasons that I'll find a way to get back there from the Yukon. The guides are also notably good, and I encourage everyone to ask for one (we had two at various times).
A well organized museum. The volunteers are helpful and friendly. The displays teach about Canadian warplane history in a easily understandable way. This is a museum I will visit again and recommend it to all Canadians and visitors from other countries
Super fun for our 2 and 3 year olds! Lots to see and the kids loved getting up close to the planes! Will definitely go again when the weather is warmer to see the planes outside as well.
