Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre reviews
Excellent display of planed, all indoor. Located close to downtown. Very informative. Had a great 3D movie about forest fires. Excellent display, shows what it is like, close up. more »
I visited the museum with my 2 kids (6&10). When I tapped my CC it didn't work (tap wasn't working apparently). So I swiped it and the machine said "approved". The worker said, great thanks and I..... more »
Fantastic place to visit. If you are ever in the Sault St Marie area make sure you set aside 2 hours for this great site more »
Wonderful visit, they seem to add more displays to keep coming back worth while. Year round they seem to have activities of interest to all. EDIE was a great hostess and really was proud to show us so many things that were an interest to everyone in our group. She was worth all 5 stars.
Nice exhibition and the 3d movie about the firefighters was great. The introduction film with the dog was cool and funny. Some areas seemed a little bit chaotic.
It is a nice place, however beware of their employees. I know of atsleast one employee that is a heroin junkie, recently lost access to her kids through CAS, and Bushplane is aware of this and allows her around other people's children. Very concerning. We can never full enjoy our time there because this person is always lurking around the children activities.
Great museum if you have any interest in the planes and people who helped establish the Northern parts f Ontario, Great scenes and a children's section though the gift shop is a bit over priced even for a gift shop.
Must see. There is huge collection to explore. 3D movie was very informative, don't miss. Give at least couple of hours to view all exhibits.
