Very interesting collection in this museum. Easy to find, just follow the markers. Some unique airplanes are on view in this building. Also very nice to see is the seaplane base located just next to it.

A great place for the whole family to enjoy the short and very entertaining movies along with displays and interactive skill tests. Have taken many visitors and family members to this Centre in the last 10 years!

The displays which are there and the volunteer staff, make the entire venue fantastic. My Grandchildren enjoy the whole place, from the 4d show to the displays in the hanger are spectacular especially when they can actually go into the planes, pilot them and use the tower radio to communicate fires to the base station on the floor.

My husband and I visited the museum just because we thought it might be neat. It turned out to be very enjoyable and the two movies shown were also good. We liked the information given and all of the planes set up. It was really cool that you could actually go inside some of them. We are not necessarily plane... More

Pilots or people fascinated with planes and flying need to add The Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre to their time or pass-through at Sault Ste. Marie. And, if you are a pilot, the Center is a registered water-based airport for floatplanes -- there's a helicopter pad as well. It's a "get up close" kind of place to experience all kinds of... More

I have a very limited interest in planes and was surprised how much I enjoyed the museum. Not only can you get up close to the planes, the history is actually interesting. Lots of videos to see. If in the Sault you need to take the time to visit here

This is one of the most interesting museums you will ever visit. It is extremely well organized and casual. Don't forget to see the wildfire video. That alone is worth the modest admission fee.

The hands on and visual displays are wonderful. I was very surprised at how close we could get the the planes. Very seldom do we see these planes up close and so many of them. Many of the planes have been restored perfectly. Great education on Fire fighting. There is a Ranger tower that the children really love. We took... More

I Have lived in the Sault for most of my life and love to go to the Bush Plane Museum. I try to go every 2-3 years and I am always amazed. Them seem to keep adding new things. Well worth the visit.
