We weren't even aware this place existed until we were driving up to it. Just the massiveness of the blimp hanger was worth the stop. We watched the video then got to wander around this museum of old airplanes. The video taught us so much about blimps and how they became popular. The big guppy plane that you are able... More

We were lucky to see this place last March, it still had lots of restored vintage aircraft. The movies and displays in separate lighted and heated rooms were well done. An accurate accounting of the reason for and building of the two hangars is fascinating if like to learn about Coast Guard history in wartime. Only one hanger survives and... More

We've been to the Tillamook Air Museum several times over the years and every time I'm in awe of this blimp structure. Seeing the F-14A is always my favorite but the number of aircraft has diminished since my last visit five years ago. Their website shows you the list so you can see what to expect. My son and I...

After visiting today, we were disapointed by the lack of aircraft to be seen. There were only a dozen or so aircraft in various states of total disrepair. The only one that looked flyable was the Mig 17(beautiful). The Tomcat was a close second with the A7, all the rest were ready for the scrap heap. Without a few cockpit... More

This was an interesting place to see. The size of the hanger is an attraction in itself. If you're interested in old planes and air history, this is a good place to visit. The gentleman working at the time we were there was a wealth of information and seemed to love sharing the history. I'm not sure it wold hold... More

One of the best collections of ww2 era planes. Very good selection and amount of aircraft. Not a neat, clean, museum type setting, but a giant old airship hangar with tons of planes..Excellent for airplane enthusiasts !

This is such a historic place to visit, so much to see and plenty to keep the kids entertained. We spent several hours and feel like we could have spent more time. We love to be able to see history

This might have been good once, but it sure isn't now. We saw it at Memorial Weekend 2014, there were about 10 planes, most with very little information about them, four of them just pushed together. There is talk of the place being relocated, and if that's the case they should close this one, or at least cease charging visitors... More

The building itself is unique and worth a short visit but not the current cost of admission. The Mini-guppy was great to see. The aircraft shown at the website differed greatly from those actually there. Labeling of exhibits was poor and missing from some. My view is that it is a storage place for RVs and poorly lit at that.... More

Last time on the coast, we'd bypassed this due to lack of time, but this time, we just had to visit. The building is HUGE! It is a wooden structure - built in WW2 to house blimps which were used for off shore patrols. The building itself if worth the time to visit... There is a video display of how... More
