At $25.00 a head to enter it is a bit on the expensive side,especially with there are other costs involved. $25 dollars to go around the Spruce Goose for a family of 4, but a family of 5 you have to split in to two groups of 4. I am still trying to work out who that would work. Then... More

My husband and son spent five hours here! They were one of the last ones to leave. If it wasn't for the kidszone me and my younger daughter would have went crazy. Not my thing. I thought the admission price was a little steep but we have gone to the DC museums for free so maybe I am a little... More

I don't know much about Aviation stuff but this museum was really nice. Getting to see the Spruce Goose was amazing, can't believe it is so large. All the times we have spent in the L.A. area and never once went and saw the Spruce Goose, we wait until now. Seeing all the other planes and how times have changed.... More

When I realized the Spruce Goose was in Oregon, I had to go. I was expecting a very basic museum as it is kind of out in the middle of no-where, but I was VERY pleasantly surprised. The museum is HUGE with gorgeous grounds and 3 very modern buildings, one housing the Spruce Goose and other historical aircraft, the 2nd... More

This place is about 45 minutes south of Portland and well worth the drive. Several coffee places and wineries along the way! The museums were excellent and my two boys (11 and 12) loved the water park. We spent the whole day there and probably could have easily gone back because we did not get to see everything!

This is is at least 30 miles from Portland or Salem and definitely a planned visit, but worthwhile if you are anywhere near the area, or passing thru. The roads meander through mostly farms and vineyards. If you are into wine tasting, it's a double-hitter. The Spruce Goose is incredible, especially when you read the details about how it was...

The air museum is located in lovely buildings, but $24 per person is steep. Yes, we could have received discounted tickets at our B&B, but we arrived in town prior to check-in time. The museum is the "only show in town".

This museum was built as a labor of love, and with a lot of determination it has realized its original vision. It houses a fabulous collection of aircraft, and having been fortunate enough to live nearby I have seen almost every kind of historical aircraft. The museum really earned a neat spot in the community through hosting USO style musical... More

Super cool museum, the staff is amazing and the Spruce Goose is jaw-dropping HUGE. Definitely worth seeing, we bought a Patron pass so we could bring our family back because we just couldn't see it all. Foe anyone who loves planes it's a must!
