This is one of the best places to visit when in Sault Ste. Marie. It is extremely well curated and quite a bit of fun.

This is such an interesting place to just look around. In December we enjoyed the venue for our annual Kid's party. The staff is easy to work with and the venue is very special. Make sure to take some time at this special place.

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.

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.

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.
