When we arrived, kids' imaginations were fired up by a real jet, its nose pointing towards the sky like a church steeple by the entrance of the museum. Inside, more than forty, genuine, functioning specimens, awaited in the immense hangar. Before entering the hangar, our budding pilots enjoyed operating model airplanes (but note that they change the displays regularly). The impressive hangar's fleet was bathed in natural light. The wheels of certain planes were as tall as my 5 year old. Part of the site was dedicated to the restoration of vintages models, an excellent opportunity to appreciate aeronautical engineering. We could access a few aircrafts and their engaging cockpits (otherwise, it would be real torture!) The kids loved the two-seat Flying Boxcar simulator, with its wall-to-wall switches and dials. More planes can be seen from the exterior terrace. Weather permitting, you can sometimes observe vintage aircrafts in flight, taking off from the adjacent Hamilton International Airport, located 1km away.
