Can you imagine building a structure that could house at least five World War Two K-class dirigibles? During the early days of WWII, 1942, metal was in short supply. When the Tillamook Naval Air Station was established, dirigibles were used to silently patrol our Pacific shores. They were housed at Tillamook. This fifteen-story building is so huge-nearly 1,100 feet long... More

After reading the brochure at our rental house, we almost didn't go. But as we were driving to Munson creek falls, and the building just jumped out and screamed "AIR MUSEUM" at us, so we stopped. It was so much better than we thought it would be. The hangar is a massively huge building, and is as cool as such... More

Loved that this has been preserved and tells a story seldom heard - the coast watchers. These 2 hangars (one burned in the 90's) are amazing!

We had to go to the air museum when we saw the building from the road. It was calling to us! People at the museum (and in these reviews) are very upset about the lack of planes and the changing collection - so if you are only going to see the planes, you should turn around. But for us it... More

The major collection that formed the backbone of this museum are all gone. All that's left is junk. Save your money, save your time, save your anger at the deception of the museum trustees by not being honest and STAY AWAY. They say that "someday soon" the collection will be back. Wait. Call ahead. Don't go now.

Horrible! We drove 2 hours to see the planes with our grandsons from CA. SIX small planes left..thats it! But they don't tell you they've moved them all to Madras and still charge you $9 to see nothing. I mean NOTHING! 10 mins and we were done...ridiculous! Skip this...the best part of this $60 visit was the Café.

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
