This is a very well equipped museum with lots of planes and a separate space museum and movie theatre. I went to see the Spruce Goose. Admission fee is $25 pp. Almost walked away but I really wanted to see the SG. Walked up the stairway to the small glassed in room of the plane. Couldn't even see the cockpit.... More

Loved this place. Excellent walk around displays. Walk into the belly of the " Spruce Goose" ! Volunteers are flyers ex flyer. So lots of info. Waterpark next door. The area is famous for winetasting, great activity for the kids and grown-ups.

Honestly, our expectations of Evergreen - in the middle of Oregon wine country - were not high. However, the $25 entry fee was WELL worth it, as Evergreen has one of the coolest collections of airplanes, helicopters and space stuff that we have ever seen. The movie was even fun! And, we wished we had planned enough time to see... More

We almost missed this and would've been so disappointed! We're both interested in airplanes, so it was a real treat. But I'm sure anyone would enjoy spending some time here- such an amazing collection!

This was well worth the price, If you go look into getting a yearly pass, its good at over 300 location in the USA. This is a well maintained location with wonderful planes that are well maintained and easy to get around. There are two Museum areas Aircraft and Space, don't miss either; and between them is the Theater with... More

We really enjoyed the variety of planes and rockets at the museum. We had a huge bonus as 4 Apache helicopters from WA base visited the museum and the pilots talked with museum visitors and let the kids sit in the cockpit. Food was decent, but a bit slow.

There is a lot of history to be seen here. The spruce goose is spectacular. Very well laid out and tells history of each exhibit. We did have to take a lot of two lane roads to get here but well worth the trip

Excellent museum - especially for a history/airplane buff. My husband could have stayed there all day. Spruce Goose was fantastic to see up close. Good tour of inside of B17 - excellent volunteers that provide a lot of background information

The first building is filled with historically significant aircraft from the beginning at Kitty Hawk to the present. Mostly military aircraft, mainly US and Allies filled the massive hanger but the real center piece was Howard Hugh's colossal Spruce Goose. For an extra fee you can tour the flight deck. (What a bummer.) Overall a significant historical tour of flight.... More

I mean, where else can you stand inside of the Spruce Goose? As impressive as that one plane is, the museum is filled with an incredible history of aviation! I have visited this museum countless times with ages 2 - 82! It is a win-win for everyone who goes. It is especially meaningful when you have the chance to talk... More
