The Evergreen Air and Space Museum is an Orgasm for the Aviation Eyes...and not in the naughty variety. For private museum, this place rivals the Smithsonian, Wright-Paterson, and the Boeing Museum. If you love airplanes, this is a must to visit.

If you like planes and our space program information plan 2-2.5 hours if you have that much time. There is a lot to see and absorb. If a tour is available that will enhance your visit.
