Well thought through layout and very informative displays. You would have to be very patient to take in the entire facility. It would take hours. The price is steep. Cafe has decent eats. We spent about 2 hours taking in the spruce goose & space hanger.

Stopped in on a trip from the coast to Portland and was wowed! The campus was huge and the venues were very inviting. The movie was very entertaining and had a point plus the tours were riveting. Makes you want to go back and concentrate on a few displays at a time. I wished that we had more time on... More

Beautiful, well laid out collection of airplanes and other aerial related equipment from helicopters to some space rockets, World War II planes and the Spruce Goose. Museum collection is in 3 different buildings on the grounds. So many aircraft it is difficult to list all but it has some large planes as well as smaller aircraft. During warmer months be... More

My husband and I took a short trip for our anniversary and wanted to see this museum. Wow! What a treat if you like aviation like we do. The museum houses aircraft from each era of flight including the Spruce Goose. There is a theatre with three showings daily, not always related to aviation. One film was a National Geographic...

The Evergreen & Space Museum day pass includes the aviation and space museums as well as one movie. We picked a 3-D movie, Hurricane, which was magnificent! Five years of filming a hurricane from space, under water and on the ground is a must see! We paid the $25 to visit the cockpit and have our photo taken in the... More

We went on a spring break day and had a great time. Lines get kind of long but plenty of people there to help out and make it run smooth. I have never seen so many Lifeguards in my life! Kind of spendy but orth it.

The Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum was a surprise. I'm sure they wish that everyone had the passion for aviation that they do, but I don't which is why it was a surprise how fascinating the museum was. Especially, The Spruce Goose. Pictures absolutely do not do it justice. It is MASSIVELY MASSIVE. And to find out how it's constructed... More

My husband and I are doing an air and space museum tour and this one was one of the most enjoyable. When driving in, the first thing noticed is the 747 perched atop one of the buildings. It evidently is part of the water park. There are a few buildings containing air and space exhibits and a theater. The magnificent... More

The Museum is housed in two buildings, one dedicated to aviation and the other to space exploration. It is done very well and very impressive. When you enter the aviation building, you can't help but be blown away by the Hughes Flying Boat, otherwise known as the Spruce Goose, which just dominates the whole building dwarfing all the other aircraft...

The museum is divided into two parts - one building with the air museum and the other with the space history. The main attraction at the air museum is, of course, the Spruce Goose, and it, like the Grand Canyon, is something you need to see to appreciate the size and breadth of this plane, as well as the engineering...
