We visited both museum sections, did not do the theater or waterpark. This is a Smithsonean quality museum. The Spruce Goose is awesome and they have everything a plane or space loving adult or child could want. Give yourself at least 2 hours.

This was one of the best aviation museums I've ever been to. The Spruce Goose takes up the majority of the main museum and the cockpit tour was also absolutely worth the $30 for a family of 4. The guides are excellent and all have some history with flying some of the planes you see around the museum so are extremely knowledgeable. The space building was also really neat and equally impressive. I would highly recommend coming by if you are in the Willamette Valley!

This museum is a little out of the way but will reward you with a visit. The Spruce Goose is the crown jewell and alone, worth the price of admission. Make sure you take the close up tour and sit in the cockpit.

The rest of the collection has some real gems and the accompanying fact boards are very thorough. The volunteers are also very knowledgeable and friendly.

We spent almost 4 very enjoyable hours here

My husband and I both really enjoyed this museum. He is a Vietnam War vet, and of course, was very interested in the planes and helicopters from that era. The Spruce Goose was impressive, but quite honestly it wasn’t the center of our attention. Quite an extensive collection here, and the volunteer guides were very helpful and enthusiastic.

We chose to visit this museum at the last minute. It was a great way to spend a few hours. Exhibits are well presented and the docents are friendly.

Staff was amazing. It was clean and easy to navigate. The spruce goose was the coolest part of the museum.

Talk about worth a detour...this is worth the whole trip. My wife stayed for 2 1/2 hours in an aviation museum...never happened before. The museum founders' connection with the CIA has enabled some unique "loans". Some from the Black Bird SR-71 that you won't see elsewhere. Plenty of parking and surprisingly good sandwiches so plan to have lunch by the Spruce Goose (no ice for your drink...blame Covid)

What a place! I have wanted to visit the Evergreen Aviation Museum for a long time, and it was worth the wait. The location is beautiful, with an awesome campground next door, so you can walk to the museum in 5 minutes. The museum is laid out in two parts, roughly planes and space exhibits respectively.
Of course, the H4 or "Spruce Goose" is the highlight of the plane museum, it's wins filling the ceiling and fuselage splitting the hall. It was almost overwhelming to look at, and for a few extra bucks you can tour the cockpit and sit in the seat Howard Hughes did on it's one and only flight. A real treat for any aviation enthusiast!
The other exhibits were also beautifully restored and presented, in both halls. The only one that wasn't was a WWII vintage PBY that still had it's Pacific wartime patina, which looked great.

We stayed overnight in McMinnville on our tour of wine country. We stopped at the museum as a break from wineries and were rewarded with a great experience. The museum contains the giant "Spruce Goose" built by Howard Hughes which you can tour inside. The were many other planes from all aviation eras. The volunteer staff was mostly retired military pilots and crew. They provided great stories about the planes. There is a space museum in another building which was also very good. If you like airplanes or are traveling with children, then this is a great stop.

What a beautiful aviation and space museum!! So glad I stopped on my camping trip to Oregon. Really wanted to see it! $15.00 senior entrance rate and well worth it! I had my truck and overhead camper and was able to stay two nights in their north parking lot for free. What an excellent way to see the museum the next day and not have to rush off.
