Really well done aviation museum. Lots of lovingly restored original (or lovingly re-created, for aircraft that only the Smithsonian holds, like original Wright Bros plane or the Spirit of St. Louis) historical aircraft from all eras of flight. The highlight is the immense "Spruce Goose", the largest airplane ever built. We didn't know that this museum held that airplane until... More

This is really a nice museum but you need to be into aviation to really enjoy and appreciate it for what it is. If you are, this is a great collection! If you are not, then to be able to see the Spruce Goose etc is still a fun touristy thing to do. You need a minimum of an hour... More

We got there just before the 5:00pm closing, so they let us in free. But a cranky old guy guarding the spruce goose cockpit wouldn't let us look at it without tickets. I later learned they are $50 apiece. Wow! if that's so. The building is beautiful and all the planes on display look perfect. Good visit if you maybe... More

Something for everyone. It is an aviation and aerospace museum with incredible exhibits plus it has a unique aviation themed water park that is a "must do" for kids. My grand-daughter, Milena, is 8 years old. Her mother is an airline pilot for Alaska Air and I completed 33 years with TWA in a variety of non-flying jobs. Both Milena... More

My son (16) and I stopped in as we had not been there in a few years and as before were impressed by the number and variety of displays available. It costs a bit to enter at $48 for the two of us, but given the number of displays, quality and information provided it is probably not too bad of... More

We did the Space & Aviation museum's with a large group of young teen agers and they loved it. This museum actually has thought of the idea that you might like to sit down in a comfortable place during your tour and still be able to enjoy the exhibits. To accomplish this they have a bunch of airline seats spread... More

Cross branded with the water park does not mean that they will recognize the admission paid for the other. Don't believe their website. Museum contents are definitely not worth the $25 admission fee.

I've heard about the Spruce Goose but it was brilliant to learn the story. As well, there was a friendly greeting and lots of older guys giving personal tours I suspect they are volunteers (so enthusiastic ans knowledgeable). The aeroplanes were over lots of vintages and in remarkable condition. The. We went to the NASA and aerospace hanger and that... More

This is definitely worth seeing! Lots of great exhibits and information. Things you normally may never see. A little pricey but worth it.

We did not even know this was in the area and were advised to go and what a place. We had already seen "The Spruce Goose" fun to see again but the real pleasure for us was seeing and talking to the volunteers about all the various planes. This is a MUST SEE if you are ever in the area.... More
