If you are interested in aviation at all, this is a must see. This is a huge building and is drafty and cold. Bundle up before you go. There is a nice gift shop. Check it out.

I've been to the Tillamook Air Museum before. And, would go every time I am in Tillamook because I always saw something I missed before. I'm sad that it is down-sizing and will soon be a thing of the past. Please visit if you are a history or aviation fan. It's the last blimp hanger in and something you got... More

It is the only hangar of it's kind left in the United States that is open for public access, and it is one of the largest wooden structures in the world, The hangar building housing the aircraft is 1,072 feet long and 296 feet wide, giving it over 7 acres of area. It stands at 192 feet tall.

The building is the most spectacular thing about this museum. It is large enough to hold 8 blimps (there's a photo of that in the museum) and it is made entirely of wood. A huge barn of a place with a few vintage aircraft inside, and a very modest entry fee. It's worth an hour's visit when you are in... More

I have stopped here at the Air Museaum many times during the last 10 or 12 years. I have always enjoyed the aircraft and the location. This time there seems tyo be some difficulty as the number of planes is way down and the coffee shop is closed, even the gift shop has only a limited supply of merchandise left.... More

They do have limited planes, there was no mention of them "closing" I wish they could get a hold of the P-3s that were used in ww2 and also used as Air Tankers for the Forest Service (that have been decommissioned

I have wanted to stop here numerous times in the past but always seemed to be passing through without enough time, however this weekend our car club took a drive down the Oregon coast and planned to make this museum a stop. When we called to find out the hours we found out that because of some type of disagreement... More

This museum is virtually empty of most of its aircraft. Most have been moved to Madras, Oregon. Don't waste your time. The blimp hanger is interesting and there are pictures of its construction and use. But if you are interested in the advertised 30 aircraft, the majority are gone. There are a few old Navy aircraft that have seen better... More

I love how a family can go do something for fun and get a history lesson at the same time. Bring a coat! It gets chilly.

Awesome history with this building. It's to bad that all you really see is the very dark building with a handful of planes. Very musty viewing room showing a 16 min. video of the buildings history is about the only thing worth while. And that is NOT worth the $9.00 per person entry. I would say 80% of the building...
