Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum

Over 40 military aircraft are housed in a flying museum located at the Hamilton International Airport, although only a few of the planes can fly. From biplanes to jet fighters and world war two bombers. The facility is just off Highway 6 at 9280 Airport Road in Hamilton, open 9am-5pm, 7 days a week except for a few holidays, and the current adult price of admission is $15 (including tax).

The static displays are quite extensive but the jewel of the museum is the restored and functional AVRO Lancaster bomber which can even be seen flying over Toronto every now and then. Flights can be purchased in the Lancaster along with a B-25 Mitchell a Fairey Firefly, a PBY Canso and a few others. Prices range from $100 in a DC-3 to $3,600 for a seat in the Lancaster.

Father's Day weekend - June 15-16, 2019 you can attend FLYFEST with many of the planes being flown during both days. Discounted rides will also be available on a first come, first served basis and helicopter rides will also be available. Please note that aircraft flight will be subject to weather. Adult tickets for entrance to the museum will cost $20 for this special event.
Several military vehicles are outside the museum and the vertical starfighter jet aircraft on display in front of the museum is in pieces inside the building being restored. Inside the museum is the static display aircraft and where they roll the Lancaster into when flights are finished. Outside on the right are a number of aircraft that fly, to the left is a large display of planes that cannot fly.

See more warplanes after the jump.
