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

This museum has a variety of bush planes and related artifacts on display and my 17 year old son really appreciated that you could walk right into many of planes to take a look. We learned a great deal about fighting forest fires and the value of bush planes for settling and maintaining communities in the north, emergency response and... More

I loved seeing the history here and the interactive exhibits. I wanted to ask more questions, but I visited at a time when I didn't have access to their experts. I know I will come back again and learn more.

Good visit and nice to see. We went and there was a wedding being set up and it looked beautiful but it was a bit awkward.
