Great collection of old planes and artifacts. WW2 planes were of particular interest. Bank on at least 3 hours to go through the huge building. Indoor waterslide 'next door' if you want o send the family off.

We visited here recently for the first time. This is a very nice air museum with lots of knowledgeable docents available to answer questions. They have a large range of planes and space items. Some of the space items are replicas but are very well done. Large, easy to navigate campus. The price is steep but worth it.

Don't listen too closely to what the local "experts" at the museum tell you, but do go and look. Spruce Goose fills the main hall with lots of smaller aeroplanes, Me262, Fury, Spitfire ..... the list goes on. And there is a missiles/space/jet hall as well as great outdoor exhibits. And you can get in some of them (extra charge!).... More

A good selection of aeroplanes The Spruce Goose is clearly the star attraction. We were not disappointed and it was well worthwhile going out of our way to visit the museum. The exhibits are well presented and everything is clearly identified with interesting information provided.

Stopped in for a quick visit on our way to the Portland airport. Two buildings plus the water park. Easy enough to stop in and take some photos from the entrance if you don't want to pay the entrance fee of $25. Lots of retired military men/women on hand to answer questions. If you have time and aviation interests you,... More

For $25 you get access to two huge hangars of airplanes and helicopters, as well as the theatre that runs various airplane related pieces. Yes, there is an additional charge to have your picture taken in the cockpit of the Spruce Goose, which I found to be completely reasonable. They is also an additional charge for popcorn at the theatre,... More

We were delighted to find this wonderful Museum just outside of McMinnville. This is an impressive collection of planes, including the Spruce Goose. The Space Museum is just as impressive. We spent most of the day there, and truly enjoyed ourselves. Our docent, Tim, was extremely knowledgeable and our tour with him was very interesting and educational. There is something... More
