Visited on a weekend in August 2013, when one woukd think it be peak season, yet the museum seemed pretty empty and most interactive displays and lots of the lighting were shut off. However, regardless of the museum feeling dead and closed of any visitors, the actual collection of planes (which is of course the most important component) was stunning,well... More

Everyone from age 2-70 enjoyed this visit. Very educational with lots of hands-on activities for the kids. There are educational movies that are not boring at all even for the kids.

This was an unassuming little museum that we decided to go to at the last minute. Our kids really liked the planes. They had a nice variety of interactive exhibits for our kids. Also there were 2 movies, one in 3D to help illustrate the role of bush planes in Canada. A few planes were opened up so the kids... More

Their collection from the earliest Bush planes to today's is very extensive. It's also very well laid out, you can go in sequence through the years. The two movies are great. The 3D fire fight one is quite an... More

Very interactive and could go inside a lot of the planes. Two half hour movies you can see and both are very good. Though it was something only my husband would really enjoy but I loved it!

Liked to see the various bush planes, display and movies were excellent. It was wonderful to be able to climb inside the planes as well. Surprised at how crowded some cockpits are. Movies made me feel like I was in the plane.
