I have traveled by this museum for years and finally made a trip just to visit. First, I let the kids go into the water park. They spent hours and never stopped talking how much fun they had. I spent about four hours in the museum. The planes have signs giving the history of the model as well as the... More

Took my 12-year-old granddaughter here at her request on spring break. She has recently decided to be.an Astro-physicist! She loved every minute of our walk through the museum, but the highlight was the docent who talked to us for 15 minutes about meteors and the International Space Station. We also watched a 3-D Imax movie which amazing. Great place!! Water... More

This museum was amazing from beginning to end. We thought we'd make a quick visit, but three hours later we were stil engrossed. The "Spruce Goose" was the centerpiece, but dozens of other aircraft made it really interesting. The space wing was outstanding as well. We never made it to the movie, which was included with admission, but that sounded... More

More than we imagined. We thought it would be just like the air and space museum in Seattle, however this was a bit better, on a smaller scale of course. The facilities are kept up and very nice, the Spruce Goose is of course the main attraction, however there is several other airplanes that are worth a look that Seattle... More

Nice museum but they advertised a lower price special on their website and didn't honor it. So bit of a rip off

If you are wondering where the largest wood aircraft is, it is here in the middle of Oregon! McMinnville was the former home of Evergreen Aviation, which was one of the largest cargo airlines in the world, operating Boeing 747's and tow are now here. One is a start of the waterpark! This is a separate building from the new... More

There are 3 buildings along with outside exhibits. One is for Aviation, one for 3D films and for for Aerospace/space. They have tour guides from WWII that take you around the one set and explain everything plus give their experience with the aircraft. You can go into Howard Hughes Spruce Goose. Very well organized and the films are about 45minutes... More

This place is a must visit with an enormous and exceptionally well set out collection of airplanes, helicopters and space craft. We spent 6 hours walking around the buildings discovering all sorts of amazing things. There is a great place for kids to play. The guides (who are all volunteers and ex airforce) were great and really added to the... More

Never seen the "Spruce Goose" before. WOW! Great sight for WWII planes and later. Space area and more modern warfare was excellent.
