Have stopped here many times (even flew in once), but the aircraft portion of the museum has been moved to Madras, in eastern Oregon (drier weather for old airplanes.) Erickson Air Cranes moved their operation there some time ago, so there's not much to see. You can view the massive blimp hangar from the outside, and see all the pictures... More

I made sure that I review the museum before we went. The reviews looked fine and the pictures were quite interesting. What a disappointment when we went in. The majority of the planes depicted in the pictures were not there. Just a big empty hangar. It seems like the place is being converted into a storage place for other people's... More

Apparently ownership is in a state of flux, now the emphasis is more on camping, The historical engineering associated building the huge wooden truss building has to be acknowledged. The history of the second world war non rigid air ships makes for interesting reading. If the expectation was to see a significant number of aircraft or even a blimp, do... More

One would think that a 70 year old, all wooden, historic air museum would be something not to be missed when visiting Tillamook, OR. Well, not so as we were disappointed at the dull experience here. The museum would benefit from a face-lift. You think while driving by from the road that this is really something to see. Then you... More

My husband and I stopped in here on our way home thinking it might be interested to see. Well we were wrong they might of had 4 aiplaines in the entire plave. It was mostly filled with people camping. It had some readable information but most of it was very repetitive. I do not recommend this place and I would... More

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
