This museum was awesome. There are many planes to view and they have great interactive displays. The movies shown provided a great over view of a Bush Pilot's life.

The bush plane days event was lots of fun. We had our 2 1/2 yr old and 6 mos old with us and they both had a blast. More events like this would be ideal! The train rides were a huge hit!

This was a fun museum just to wander around and then wander into all the planes. I am sure that each one has a great story to tell. Well worth a visit.

Great Museum! It is surprising in a small place like Sault St. Marie, that one would find such an entertaining and enlightening museum such as this one. The museum is dedicated to preserving the history of bush planes and forest fire management. The entrance fee is only $5 and is worth it. It contains quite a few bush aircraft that... More
