  • This place is great, much more than just planes. They have gone a long way to making this a fully active interpretive center. The lookout tower where you can "turn on" fires is great. Both films were super well done, lots of hands on stuff for kids and adults, and many of the planes you can get in! Very glad we went!
  • Extremely Friendly service! Plane lovers and kids a like will enjoy. Affordable and fair services available or any event you may be planning.
  • Great for aviation and history buffs. Beautiful planes on display. Really enjoyed learning about the history of bushplanes, fighting wildfires and the role Sault Ste Marie played.
  • This is a great museum. Lots of great planes and many you can go in. We had an event catered here and it was spot on. Recommended.
  • Lots of people have been having their weddings and events here, and it does the job, but, theres still planes strewed about everywhere, adding a weird theme to events.
