We were looking around the museum and one of the curators/mechanics started talking to us and gave us so much information about the planes and history. What a treat that was. Thanks very much!

Leaded about bush planes, bush pilots and forest firefighting in this unique. A large hanger full of float planes and tankers. 3D film following a group of firefighters as they fight a fire on land and in the air.

Taking visitors to this location is an absolute delight. Recently we had friends in town and took them to this location. While they are not airplane "buffs" they raved about what a fantastic experience it was.

We spent a couple of hours here, & if I could I would give it 3 1/2 circles. It was interesting, but not a must-see activity. If you go, be sure & watch the firefighting movie. The other video was pretty hokey.More

$12 for adults, $11 for seniors, $7 for students, $3 for children. Children under 5 are free with an adult. These are in Canadian dollars. It is worth it !
