This is a great place to see all the history of different makes and models of airplanes, cars and much more. Movie theaters show different events that have happened in Northern Ont. The forest fire one is great, it is like you are right in the fire fighting it.

Some of the videos did not work though and the computers were broken. There may have been about 4 like that. There's also a place where you can play some... More

First of all, Google says they are open until 4:00 but they were actually open until 6:00. So call to check! We expected basically a semi-shoestring operation, a hangar full of old planes. Well, there are quite a lot of old bush planes, and some excellently preserved old cars as well. And hand pumped rail cars. The planes were in... More

I had flown on one of the types of planes on display so decided to check out the museum. Many interesting planes and displays. They had two movies which were very informative. A worthwhile experience.

My daughter is in school to become a commercial airline pilot so of course we had to check out the Bushplane Museum. Not very big but certainly worth seeing.

There were lots of planes to look at and the movies were very good (thanks to Science North!), but many of the exhibits didn't work, including the flight simulator. We weren't informed about the flight simulator until after we had paid our admission and the other exhibits we were told didn't work because people were too hard on them and... More
