Wintertime hours are Tues-Sun 9-5. I recommend getting there early. We were there for 4 hours and did not see everything. Fascinating exhibits in both aviation and space. Admission includes both + 1 Imax movie. We paid an additional $25 and got the 15 minute tour of the Spruce Goose cockpit and our picture taken in the pilot/copilot seats. The... More

We arrived expecting to spend a few hours and instead stayed there all day, last to leave. There is a superb collection of exhibits, in purpose built and spacious exhibition halls. The standard of presentation is excellent, with a broad range of topics - not just the technology - enough to entertain a disparate group. Full credit to the docents... More

This museum is wonderful and a great venue for families and all aviation or space exploration enthusiasts. The museum is well organized with a loyal cadre of dedicated volunteers and staff. The collection of aircraft includes many warbirds and specialty aircraft including seaplanes, helicopters, and of course the famous "Spruce Goose". We enjoyed the IMAX and also took a peek... More

We planned to drop by the museum for a short visit two weeks ago. My boys, aged 9 & 11, begged to stay longer. We were there all day, and even at closing my boys were wanting to stay longer. Their exhibits are very well done an often interactive - keeping the attention of my boys. And then of course... More

I had a business meeting that needed a day of fun for the group, we picked here and spent the good part of the day and had lunch ! There was something for all and everyone was more than pleased. It was fun seeing a bunch of men walking around like little kids !

This museum is a must see for all. An incredible collection of vintage aircraft, it is a aviation history lesson under one huge roof. When in Portland, you can combine this museum along with a visit to the many vineyards nearby.

Air, Space, Imax, and water park. There is more here than a visits or two can handle. The aircraft run the full range early flight to moon landers. I have visited many flight museums but this has a verity of aircraft and equipment not found in other displays.

Let me preface my review by saying that I am not an "ex Military type". I had no particular interest in aviation. I just went along with friends to visit the museum. I am SO glad that I did! I thoroughly loved the museum. This is certainly one of the most beautiful museum facilities in the entire North West Region.... More
