Highly recommend visiting this museum. An incredible display of aircraft and space craft that you can see up close. We were there on a Saturday and there were no crowds. We were there for 3 hours looking at all the exhibits. I paid $25 for my sons to sit in the cockpit of the Spruce Goose and get their picture... More

It was great to see the Spruce Goose in person. It is HUGE!! There were so many cool planes to see. Lots of old ones, military ones, ones you can never imagine could have flown. Great way to learn about history and airplanes. My husband is a pilot and he LOVED it. And I found it all fascinating - really... More

This is the 2nd best air and space museum we have ever been to, and we have seen a lot of them. The "Spruce Goose" is not the only highlight, the docents are the highlight. They are so knowledgeable, most from their experience. So many planes, from a Wright Brothers replica to space capsules and rockets. What a place. The... More

A comprehensive museum of aircraft from around the world-both civilian and military. No flag waving just aircraft. The Spruce Goose is the attention getter and worth the $ 25.00 admission.

This air museum has the famous Spruce Goose aircraft, an eight engine float plane that was built by Howard Hughes. It also has many antique and WW II planes and full-size models of early planes. There is a huge Boeing 747 sitting on top of a building, with a water slide coming out of it. A fascinating and fun place... More

An amazing collection. A serious surprise in the heart of Oregon wine country. Did not expect such an interesting museum minutes away from our wine country B&B.

Spent the entire day and didn't want to leave. Visited every building and looked at every plane. Finished the day off at the water park, had a great time. There is something here for everyone including the kids.

Home of the 'Spruce Goose' and a water slide coming out of a 747 (getting it up there must have been impressive)! 3-D theater has some good shows.

Library Cultural Pass for the 4th of July weekend made for an economical but very patriotic time. We could not believe that we had spent about three hours there. It was fun to look at all the planes (there were many veteran volunteers to answer questions). They also had a great exploration area for kids (but parents will enjoy it... More

This is a very nice, new museum. I guess the Spruce Goose is the big attraction. You don't get to climb around and look at her much unless you pay extra. When she was in Long Beach you got to see more. A lot of aircraft things. Kind of pricey just to look.
