OMG!

We were not prepared for how magnificent this place was! The Spruce Goose was almost frightening...it is immense! Had lunch at the space museum. Simple but good.

We were disappointed as there really wasn't much to look at. The entire upstairs was empty! There were plenty of cool planes to check out and of course the Spruce Goose is amazing to see in person. Not sure if they were just in the middle of exhibits or what, but we left wondering why we paid so much for... More

Despite some hard times for the parent company, Evergreen, and some legal issues because of that the Evergreen Museums are still open and very worth a visit.

This museum is astounding for its size and the volume of collections. We could have spent more than a day here if we had had the time. The visual effect of seeing the Spruce Goose in person is incredible and not to be missed. The planes are nicely displayed inside and outside. There are docents who can help answer questions....

The collection of aircraft is excellent. However, they have sold off most of the guns from the gun collection and the Ford Tri-Motor has also been sold. Lots of the hands on activities and displays dont work. The financial problems of Evergreen seem to be impacting the museum. If you eant to go inside the B17 or into the cockpit... More

The Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville is a real treasure. It's an expensive attraction, but considering the cost of acquiring, maintaining, and displaying all the fantastic aircraft on hand, it's almost a bargain. From the big (Hughes' Spruce Goose and SR71) to the small (hundreds of fine detailed models) the museum is entertaining to anyone with any interest... More

Though south of Portland, this museum is well worth visiting. There are a wide range of aircraft on display both inside and outside, but the center of attraction, literally, is the Spruce Goose. This is not a replica, but the original Howard Hughes airplane. It is amazing. The space museum part is quite good as well. The whole family will... More

We spent most of the day here. Both the aviation and the space museum were interesting and informative. The big draw is the Spruce Goose, and we opted to take the cockpit tour for $25 which includes a photo. This price is for up to 4 people. Admission also includes a movie, several movies play throughout the day in a... More

We have membership with a local science museum in our area which is same association as the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum. Our visit was only enough time for the Aviation part. Our two boys 3 & 10 liked the airplanes. They especially like the kids are which has a lot hands on rides, games and simulators. We are encouraging... More
