This was a gem at the airport in Eugene. Clean place and employees are willing to walk around with you to explain anything you want to know about. Great collection in the buildings in and out.

This place is not visited frequently, but is a hidden gem for aviation buffs (and others just interested in seeing cool planes!) The volunteer staff is informative and friendly. My young sons loved it!

My husband and I took our 5 year old son here for a day trip. He loves the model planes!!! The tour guide let his sit in a few for an awesome photo op :) It's a bit on the spendy side but it was worth every penny to get our little guy interested in aviation! And they have some... More

The men who showed us through the museum exude pride and enthusiasm as well as knowledge about the collections in the museum. From first hand relationships with WWII Aces, personal items donated to the museum by American heroes, and a huge number of models put together by one of their own, we were gratified to meet these folks and spend...

We visited on a day the museum was closed. The two buildings were quite cold which made it uncomfortable. The two docents were very knowledgeable and took time to explain and answer questions. There was an interesting collection of small and exotic airplanes. The collection of models was fantastic. A visit on a warmer day would have been more pleasant.

My husband and I wend to the Oregon Air and Space Museum on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Salem, OR. We were not disappointed. The variety of the items in the Air museum was incredible - from early aircraft to modern-day military aircraft. The docents were informative and while speaking to one, I found out he was... More

Restored aircraft, indoor museum, good food, and a wine bar. Docents to show you around, good videos of the various aircraft history.

I am a frequent visitor to this museum; some displays remain the same, while others change, so there is always plenty to see. Conversations with the volunteers are informative and fun; they are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The displays are wonderfully laid out; the exhibits and pictures are well-marked, and the planes are wonderful!

Very friendly and knowledgeable volunteer run museum. We got a private tour and were able to ask a ton of questions and learn a lot. Very cool collection of model aircraft. Lots of information on WWII aces with lots of memorabilia. Many great aircraft, engines, etc. Nice display of space items too! My 10 year old son and my wife... More
