I'm not what you'd call an aviation enthusiast, but I loved this museum. Until you see it in person, it's hard to imagine how really big the Spruce Goose is. We also paid an extra $25 to get our picture taken in the cockpit area. I was thrilled when I learned that we could sit in the pilot's seat where... More

We stopped here on our way to Portland and it was well worth the time. The Spruce Goose is now here. A lot of staff available to answer any questions. Very clean. Really need more than just one day to see it all. We were impressed.

This was my fourth or fifth visit to this amazing museum - beautifully situated in a park like setting, the main attraction, needless to say, is the Hughes HK-1 Hercules, popularly known as the "Spruce Goose" - a name that Howard Hughes hated, by the way. The first time I saw this incredible airplane I could only stand and look... More

This experience is truly worth the time and money! The "Spruce Goose" is nearly beyond belief and the Docents for this exhibit are knowledgeable volunteers who actually participated in the restoration process, The rest of the collection is varied and interesting, especially the WW II Warbirds to include the Curtis P-40, of "Flying Tiger" fame which my Dad worked on...

The aviation museum was enjoyable, but the space museum was our favorite. The museum was clean, well organized, and full of memorable artifacts. Our guide on the space side was by request. Just ask, and someone will accompany you and give you a better insight to the exhibit. We did receive free movie passes with our admission, but we did... More

Visited the Evergreen museum again this month. This is probably my 5th or 6th visit since it opened. The Spruce Goose VIP tour lead by Bruce was fabulous! The docents are all excellent and very helpful. The Space museum portion is excellent as well. There are several new planes outside in the back so it looks like more restoration projects... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the large collection of aircraft on display. The buildings are spectacular and compliment the displays. We highly recommend everyone visit.

My 13-year old son and I visited the museum and water park. We thought it was amazing. We did the photo in the cockpit of Howard Hughes' Hercules, which was a super bargain. We were able to take a private tour and then get our photo taken in the cockpit! My son is a want-to-be pilot and the "Dream to... More

Did not know about the museum when we went to McMinnville but what a pleasant surprise. We did not leave enough time to really do the museum properly but enjoyed every minute. The WWII planes were a big plus as was the section on the Russian space program. Learned many new things and will return to spend more time.

my sons loved going here and the playground outside was a blast! Great service! Not crowed at all. Loved it. We'd go again. A little too expensive though.
