If you a an aeronautical enthusiast this is a MUST, if your not like my wife you will still enjoy this. It says you can do this in 2 hours and for my wife that was fine, but for me I wanted to see and learn from the men and women who volunteer their time and experience (make it a... More

Every member of the family will enjoy this museum. While a little pricey, the docent will take you inside the Spruce Goose, explain the systems and show you the many beach balls inside for flotation. You will hear about it's epic trip from Longbeach, California all the way to McMinnville, Oregon and how it was put back together in the... More

Whats not to like. This a aviation museum to match Duxford in the UK. Our US friends pointed it out on the way back from the beach as it has the Spruce Goose, a little bit of Howard Hughes history. A huge collection of planes plus a space hanger which is very interesting. Be sure to ask one of the... More

Seems a little pricey at first but they do offer a AAA discount (among others). Great aviation museum and don't miss the space building....you can go all the way down to the base of the rocket, and it's an impressive experience! Lots of hands on things for both kids and adults in both buildings.

Using my membership in my local air museum, I got in for free which saved my some money. They have a good selection of aircraft and I enjoyed taking photos of all those that interested. I could wish that some of the aircraft had more detailed information on their display plaques

Awesome history & technology. We went mainly to see the spruce Goose but were amazed to see so much more. Friendly staff gave us more tidbits about displays. Well done labelling of the many planes & space craft. Both space museum & general history building well laid out with intuitive paths thru exhibits. Didn't visit water slides from 747 &... More

Besides the "Spruce Goose" there are many interesting things to see. Besides the aviation museum there is the Space Museum. We didn't have time for the movie but I am sure it is done well as the rest of the place is. This is a MUST SEE if you can, the Spruce Goose alone makes it worth the visit but... More

What a wonderful place; everything from the beginning of flight right up to space flight. There are a number of volunteers throughout all the exhibits and they are very friendly and knowledgable. The Spruce Goose is amazing to see; althoough there is a $50 charge for a 45 min tour. We opted to just enjoy the enormity of the Goose... More

IF you can take the drive from Portland, while worth your time. The Spruce Goose may be the main attraction but there is so much more to see. You may think the space museum would be a let down after the Spruce Goose but it is worth the walk across the parking lot.

A bucket list item for my husband. We planned the entire trip from Australia around coming to see this monster of an aircraft. It did not disappoint. Even I was not bored. The plane itself simply was amazing; the other exhibits were solid - some space, some WW11 aircraft, not too much of anything. The only concern was the side... More
