The experience begins the moment you and your guests arrive at our fabulous facility where nostalgia fills the air and the museum's extraordinary collection of vintage aircraft set the stage. There is just nothing like it. All rooms are fully catered by our chefs and exceptional staff.

Whether your group is a small crew of 10 or a full squadron of 1,400, the museum is truly an impressive location. It is a popular site for reunions, weddings, dinners, dances, Christmas parties and business meetings.

There are a wide variety of meeting rooms and special event areas available to rent for your corporate or private functions. The Museum's unique location is also an ideal setting to conduct business meetings, as out-of-town invitees can fly in to Hamilton International Airport and make use of our private aircraft apron.

Our Facilities

Our Hangar is an ideal setting for receptions and special gatherings for up to 1400 people! Tables are set up right on our main hangar floor, surrounded by dozens of spectacular vintage aircraft. Guests are welcome to wander around the hangar during your special event to view these fabulous planes and we always endeavor to have several volunteers available on the hangar floor to answer questions about the facility and our aircraft. The hangar is fully heated and is wheelchair accessible.
