Good museum, lots of interesting planes (in addition to the Spruce Goose), small cafe. Included is a movie. Good, especially for families with kids who LOVE airplanes.

I went because my husband really wanted to go. I wasn't so sure I wanted to go. But truly, I am so glad I went. It was awesome. There are guided tours put on by volunteers who are pilots themselves and that is really neat. The kids section is really fun and we as adults had lots of fun in... More

This museum give the smithsonian Air and space a run for its money. It is laid out extremely well. As an aviation career man and an aviation enthusiast. I was very pleased with this museum. It has everyones favorite aircraft type. Also An SR-71 not to mention the most famous SPRUCE GOOSE. Well worth the time to visit.

Took advantage of the national museum day and got the free passes. I live here and spend most of my time outside and this was a great chance to see more. I have a couple videos from the Evergreen Aeromodelers rc club which flies on the campus and builds models inside the space museum. http://youtu.be/NUjN08F2LsU http://youtu.be/SwfKO4e5kYg

The Evergreen Museum, home to the famous Spruce Goose, is much more. It includes an IMAX theatre, a Space Centre, and a great collection of war and civilian planes. A must see.

Loved seeing the Spruce Goose and many planes from history. The NASA building was incredible! Saw many artifacts from the moon launch, control center and the veterans were very willing to talk with you and explain many things you were seeing.

The main reason I went here is because Howard Hughes "spruce goose" is here. However, there is so much more to see. The space exhibit building is packed with spacecraft and rockets from the WWII era to the present. Russian spacecraft are on display too. The spruce goose was an awesome plane to see and you are able to walk... More

We learned about his museum from the aviation museum aka Blimp museum visit in Tillamook OR. The collection of rare aircraft is impressive for such a small... More

This place has everything from the beginning of aviation through space travel. We were there for three hours but just scratched the surface of what we could do and see. We did not have time to view the IMAX movie and just got a brief glimpse of the building housing the more modern aircraft and space exhibits. You need a... More

$25 a piece to enter the museum. Ok that's a lot of money but hey we get to see the Spruce Goose right, well, yes from the outside. But how about the inside, NO. That will cost you ANOTHER $50. That is a bunch of crap. You want to see the inside of a B17. No problem, that will be... More
