If warplanes and fighter aircraft interest you then head straight to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. This museum houses aircraft models that were actually used during World War II. It is home to several propeller-powered aircraft, helicopters and military jets. Several of the aircraft on display are in an operational condition. Avro Lancaster is a part of the museum's air shows. The Lancaster is one of the few functional Lancasters on the planet.
Hamilton Children's Museum is housed within a historic farmhouse that dates back to the late-19th century. A fun feature of Gage Park, it provides learning opportunities to kids with its many interactive displays and programs. Although mostly for children, kids and adults alike will enjoy exploring exhibits like the ship and building galleries found in this piece of living history. Note that local schools, daycare centers, and community organizations often organize tours of Hamilton Children's Museum in advance.
The Workers Art and Heritage Centre was opened by community and union activists, artists and labor historians 15 years ago as a means to celebrate Canadian workers and labor history. The Centre is located in a historic Custom building, which, built in 1860, used to regulate trade flow throughout Canada. Nowadays, the site boasts a variety of educational exhibits, performances and lectures centered around the theme of Canadian's working people. Make a stop at the Centre, it's a sure learning experience!
