The museum is interesting for all ages and has a nice assortment of planes. They have a flight simulator that takes you on one of three different trips (or all if you are like me) up north. The fee for entry is low and they have children and seniors rates. Great book shop and souvenirs too. Bought two very nice... More

Interesting Museum, make sure you go into the Yellow ( ? ) aircraft as simulator rides very good especially the Water bomber film as you fight the forest fires. You feel your self scoop up the water as you plunge down onto the lake, it`s really well done.

It was great to be able to walk through... More

The centre has many bush planes as the name implies thus unless one has an interest it's not for everyone!

A great place to take the family. The ability to see the planes and actually go in them was a treat. The children had a wonderful time with the interactive displays. Educational and fun!

We are so glad we had decided to go see it, before we even left home. Fantastic displays. The 3-D movie on how they do fire fighting was so good. Don't miss seeing this program if you go it is well worth your time. Very informative.

The Bushplane centre is wonderful for any aircraft enthusiast but is also a joy for the kids and others interested in the fascinating world of bush planes over the years. Up close and hands on experience that should not be missed.
