Great displays and exhibits. Even if you might not think this is your thing, the quality of the museum is sure to hold your interest. The displays are interesting and bring the wilds of Canada to life. Very much worth your time.

What a great museum​ and a lot of interactive features. The 3D forest fire fighting was great and brought back many memories and experiences. Having done that from 1988 - 1993. A must visit. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

My two boys enjoyed the bushplane hertiage centre very much. They got to ride on the plane and checked out many different planes. Also they understand how wild fires damage forest and life and bushplane's role in wild fires. Very educational yet fun for kids.

$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 !
