A coworker and I checked out the museum. Were we surprised! We had no idea how many items they had in here and how many movies they played. This is a great piece of history and heritage for the North, hope it never closes down due to lack of funding

Staff friendly and the rebuilders are very knowledgable people with a ton of experience. You can ask questions if they are there and willing to explain. A must to see... More

The Bushplane Centre is one of the best interactive museums I have visited. It's especially great for kids who can climb in the planes. Worth a visit even if you are not a bush plan aficionado.

Canada's bush plane history is displayed here in a great setting featuring numerous planes that have been instrumental in opening up our vast country.

This "museum" of the history of bushplane flight into Ontario's furthest reaches was rather lacking in information and artifacts.
