This is an excellent and well curated museum to visit with anyone interested in history wars in which Canada has been involved. It is one of the more interesting places to visit with your kids and visitors when in Hamilton. Always fun and well presented.

My teen and I checked it out on a whim. We spent just over an hour but you could do more. Happened to be there when Lancaster bomber was landing and taxiing in. Very cool. Lots of volunteers manning the exhibits answering questions.

This s not a large museum but there is still a lot to see. The thing I like the most about this place is that the collection of planes is maintained and most of the planes can still actually fly. The observation deck doesn't look...More

The HSR has a bus route that goes by the Museum to the airport next door but service is hourly and I'M not sure how late it goes. You could check the HSR website. Apart from that a taxi would be a good alternative.
