Lots to see; informative & interesting; 3 large buildings that included an Imax in the admission price. The Spruce Goose was incredible. The tour was great. Lots of little informative films scattered among the exhibits. (Couldn't find hubby....he fell asleep watching a film in one of the old airline seats!)

The museum has an interesting collection of aircraft, but displayed in a pedantic and two-dimensional way. The main attraction, the Spruce Goose, is housed in a building too cramped for the massive aircraft, and to learn after paying the $20 per head entrance fee that viewing the flight deck and other "VIP" features was insulting.

What's not to love about actually getting to go inside the Spruce Goose and a B12?! The volunteers were so knowledgeable, they really explained the exhibits well. This place is amazing!

Whether you are an aviation history buff or not, if you are in the area, this museum is a must visit. The fact that the worlds largest wooden framed air craft (The Spruce Goose) is housed there is a bonus. The quality of the displays and associated information is of very high standard. The history of the jet age and... More

There is a tremendous amount of information here! All of it interesting to the right crowd, but for kids, some of it is just too much. Definitely see a movie. Skip the water slide unless your kids have never been to one, and see the Spruce Goose! There is an odd display of memorabilia of the deceased founder, including his... More

For aviation buffs this is top notch! For aviation history buffs and general public it is very interesting with a wide variety of aviation and space displays, plus a first rate water park.

This is a fantastic place for the space and aviation buff. The museum is the final resting place for the H-1 'Spruce Goose' the largest all wood aircraft. The space portion of the museum is well done providing a history of space exploration, development of the rockets and the men involved from designers to astronauts. The aviation area has a... More

We have family in McMinnville and have been here many times. The museum is really neat. It is way more than a person would expect so far from a Metro area. The "Goose" is remarkable in person. They have spent a fortune on this place. It is wirth the trip if you have a flight bug.

We only had 2.5 hours so we had to rush a bit and didn't get to see any of the movies. But it makes for a tiring stroll just the same. Reading all the stories and history was enjoyable and we are glad we got to finally see the Spruce Goose. Funny that we went for the airplanes but found... More
