Well worth the stop. My grandson LOVED it. They let him sit in the "crockpot" of an airplane. The structure was originally a blimp hangar for blimps on submarine patrol during the war.

What a lesson in history. My husband and I deeply enjoyed reading the captions under all the pictures in the history room we learned so so much about it. The movie was amazing as well. For the kids the airplanes where the hit they cant touch the displayed Plane's but they have SEVERAL cockpits for the kids to climb into... More

the most amazing thing about this structure is that all the trestles that one the building are made from Oregon's wood resources, and that's a real marvel. Be sure to visit their theatre to see and hear the history of how the buildings were used, especially for the blimps during WWII.

My husband is an 'airplane buff' and we always like to hit air museums when we find them. This was interesting ... but more of a 'blimp museum' than an airplane museum. They show a 16 minute film about the construction of the 2 blimp hangars and the destruction of one of them. Lots of photos and articles ... but... More

We did really enjoy checking out all the old planes, helicopters and other aircrafts. Learning about the history was good. My husband had fun getting his picture taken with many aircrafts. The only complaint is for the price you pay to get in there wasn't enough stuff to see, so maybe just a little overpriced.

Interesting history, planes, pilots, electronics from years ago .. hangar is HUGE, be sure to dress warm as it is cold in the hangar. Reasonable entry fee, interesting particularly if you are history buff or pilot.

Lots to see and documented history as well. Liked that it is kid friendly! You can actually board a transport plane and experience the size inside.

This is Hanger "B" at The Tillamook Air Museum. It is 1,072 feet long and 192 feet in height. That's over 15 stories tall. It is very cold inside so you will want a jacket or coat. This hanger was built in 1942 by the US Navy for the war effort. It was built to launch K-Class blimps which were... More

The fact that I enjoyed my visit here despite my aversion to war, history and museums speaks volumes about this place. There was enough 'novelty' factor to keep me entertained while my husband enjoyed the detail of the planes and the history. Highlights for me were the structure itself, the fighter plane where you could climb up and have a... More

We toured the museum, it was wonderful. Janice was there to greet us and made us feel good about taking this tour. It was a great stop. We love WWII history and this was so informative and brought a great many memories to my mom who lived in Seattle during WWII. My grandson thought it was awesome. He loves the... More
