This is a small museum in an airplane hangar. There are a couple of air craft outside that the kids can climb in, but for the most part it is a no touch facility, that is harder for the little kids. They probably have 12 airplanes inside. They have a lot of airplane memorabilia. They have some special events including... More

Small accessible aviation museum with interesting planes and helicopters and historical perspective. Run by friendly volunteers with admirable enthusiasm. Recommended as a stop for an hour or so, even if not particularly interested in aircraft, for the history.

This is a small museum with some very nice, flyable aircraft on display as well as some non flying airplanes and helicopters. The display cases have some interesting material. It is located not too far from the freeway, it is easy to get to and worth the effort. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful in answering... More

Staff was friendly and they had some rather unique aircraft along with a p fifty one. Prices are reasonable but it is hard to spend too much time there because of its lack of air conditioning and lack of bigger planes. Good for a break in your travels if you have an hour to spare and like airplanes this is... More

This flight museum exceeds Wichita, KS'. aviation museum and it is the center of General Aviation Manufacturing. Good collection of aircraft with some rare birds as well of course it is not a rival nor same scale as Boeing's Museum of Flight. Good place to take kids and show them some vintage war birds.

We took 4 kids ages 6-10 (girl and boys) and they all enjoyed it. It is small - just one hangar - but there are lots of really cool planes and helicopters packed into that small space. Nothing is roped off but you are not allowed to touch any of the aircraft or get into anything. This might be a... More

The collection is not extensive, and consists primarily of ex-military aircraft. However, the presentation was good and there are a few "hands-on" aircraft outside to interest kids. There is a small gift shop in the museum.

Have recently read couple of ww2 bomber books so it was great to find this place from a google search. Thought admission reasonable and while not as large as some aviation museums in WA, it was very well done. Several families there with kids and they also seemed to be enjoying themselves. I personally liked the size as I could... More

Happened upon this as an alternative to the new Vintage Car Museum in Tacoma that was packed. Was pleased that they were having an air show. The museum is just the right size for my 84 year young dad to wander around in without getting too tired. They could use some additional seating outside of the beer garden. Thanks for... More

I had a few hours to spare today and found this aviation museum at the Olympic Airport. I love looking at airplaines and old war planes are always interesting so I jumped right in for only $7 (for adults) The entire museum fits in one hanger. There were 5 helecopters and 3 WWII vintage planes (including a beautiful P51 Mustang).... More
