A lot of interesting exhibits, many surprised me considering we were in a bush plane museum. Definitely needs more than a hour to see everything.

It is a unique place to host a weeding. The staff there are great. The planes are very interesting, even to a non mechanical or aeronautical enthusiast. Well worth a visit in the Soo.
