We stopped by here, but did not go into the Museum as we were told by the bi-plane owner, plus a review I had read, that a lot of the aircraft had been moved to Madras, Oregon. We had a long visit with the bi-plane owner offering rides and we could still see parts of the Museum. Huge blimp hanger... More

This is a great museum. Lots of classic airplanes and interactive displays for the kids. Even a little diner for lunch.

I agree with other reviewers that there were not many airplanes in this fabulous piece of history, but the hanger itself is the best. The film that discusses how it was built, and looking at this incredible structure that was built in 29 days is something to behold, and worth the price of admission. Just looking at the wooden superstructure... More

The Tillamook Air Museum is an interesting piece of WWII History and the story about the planning, construction, challenges to build and creative approach to building because it was WWII and materials were in short supply is fascinating to learn about. It reminds us that things can get done quickly and be built to last. As others have pointed out,... More

If you are an aviation enthusiast, this is 1 of only a few wood blimp hangers remaining in US. They are huge, no longer funded and are all burning down because of very dry wood structure, The history of the use of Blimps during WWII is well documented and very interesting. Takes about 45 min to 1 hr to view.... More

He thought that the building was unbelievable, very impressive!. The theater was worth watching. Value for the entry fee. They need more stuff in the exhibits. Worth preserving the unique building. An awesome piece of Washington history.

My dad was in WWII, and my husband is an aviation buff and professional photographer that has many vintage aircraft in his portfolio. While I am not a history student by any stretch of the imagination I did enjoy a two ++ hour visit through the museum. Not as many planes to see as I would have liked, but overall,... More

I was actually surprised that I enjoyed this visit. The building was built to house the WW2 blimps that were used yo protect the coast during the war. I also didn't know hot air balloons were used for this purpose. Only a couple of these buildings are still standing. The building was huge and stored several of the blimps. There... More

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the museum, including our four year old son. Lots of simulators to try out, beautiful vintage planes and got to tour the inside of a guppy. Some of the smaller perks is the vintage music coming from the sound system and the smell of the wooden hangar itself. It's incredible to think they fit 8... More
