Until recently, I did not know this existed, but it an amazing little museum located inside the hangar that has quite a few historic aircraft. This is where they are restoring not only the Lancaster bomber, but also a WWII DeHavilland Mosquito.

You can also book flights in a couple different planes.

We chose the Canadian Aviation Museum for a unique wedding rehearsal party August 18th. It was amazing! The volunteers at the museum ensured the entire event was a huge success. We began our event with drinks followed by a tour for our group. We have a family member who flew in the Lancaster bomber during the Second World War as a mid-upper gunner, so we were very interested in the Lancaster and the restoration project. Dave, our guide took us behind the scenes to show us the restoration of the rear gunner turret and shared what that experience would have been like. After our tour we had dinner inside the hangar with the hangar door open to the tarmac and three restored airplanes; the Harvard, the Chipmunk, and the Stearman. Later in the evening our guests were able to watch the pilots prepare the three planes and take off for a memorial flight. It was a very special evening for all of us and throughly enjoyed by all. It was an amazing evening. I encourage anyone looking for a unique venue for any large or small private or corporate events to consider the Canadian Aviation Museum.

What a fabulous time. We had a young lady, Annika, gave us a tour..she was incredible. She did not memorize a scipt but talked from the heart. There was many planes and a number of interactive opportunities. Then, we went into the donated museum and Pauline was so informative! She had one story after another. Westayed about 3 hours. This was a highlight of our visit to Windsor..

This museum is small but mighty.
The people there were so nice and very knowledgeable. The museum is actively restoring planes on the floor so you can see the progress up close.
They have some very neat planes and host a lot of flight history.
They had free parking.

Extremely well laid out museum. Great variety of planes through the ages. Free (optional) 45 min guided tour was super interesting. Easy to spend 2 hours or more here. Fun things in many areas to keep kids interested too. Highly recommend!

I had a few hours to kill after my flight from Windsor was cancelled so i decided to visit the local aviation museum, I thought it would just be a hanger with aircraft to look at, I was wrong! I entered the side of the building and was greeted by the young lady on reception, I had heard the "Veterans" get in for free and I as an ex British serviceman I qualified for this, she offered to look after my luggage in the office whilst I was in the museum and took me through, she introduced me to Findley, who was very knowledgeable, he proceeded to give me a guided tour of the hanger and went on to explain the history of the building at the story behind all of the exhibits, I had an enjoyable hour or so tour and on my way out to collect my luggage I decided to actually pay the entrance fee as I felt it was more than justified and goes to the upkeep and restoration of these wonderful aircraft

What a great place to visit. We had a personal tour by a wonderful young man named Findlay and did he know his stuff. He made it interesting and we learned so much about the aircraft. Highly recommended even if you’re not an aviation buff.

We were lucky enough to have our own personal tour of the planes in the museum. I learned so much about planes used in World War 2 and how they were constructed, their engines and capabilities. You also get to see the spaces where the pilots and crew had to be in which gave me a much greater understanding of how hard they fought. The Lancaster bomber is currently being restored and is on display.
