Found out about this place while looking for something to do with kids in wine country. Was going to just do the water park only but as we drove up, we saw so many planes outside the museum and we had to make it a point to go there as well. There are 3 buildings, one of which is the... More

Spruce Goose!! You have to go just to see this piece of history. Also here's a great tip - there are a ton of retired vets volunteering here, ask them questions! They are a wealth of knowledge that you can't get from a plaque (although those had lots of info too). Everyone here was so friendly and nice. Great experience.... More

The space portion is better than Cape Kennedy or the Smithsonian. It has so many air planes. And on top of that they have tanks, helicopters, and a water park. Its a shame this place is in an area that does not get a lot of traffic. It really belongs somewhere like DC. I understand they've been having financial trouble.... More

For $24 senior citizen rate we got to see the aviation museum which included an IMAX movie. Different movies play each day. I enjoyed the Spruce Goose but in order to get in the cockpit, another $25 is required for groups of four. Not sure I agree with that!

I am not an aviation buff so figured I'd be bored when extended family decided to go. However, from young to old, we all had a great time. There's a ton to see and it's very fascinating. I highly recommend, although it is pretty spendy. The watermark is also great fun so just make a whole day of it!

There a lot to see. The spruce goose is ginormous. Lots of space ships and very knowledgeable volunteers. I though it was a bit overpriced, but I would pay it again to take my grandkids. Extremely educational.

The spruce goose in the flesh is in this museum which makes up three buildings and a fourth for a water park. It's well worth the extra money to pay for the personal tours as the volunteers at this museum have a lot of first hand experience with the aircraft and persons that really flew them. You'll hear things that... More

Unfortunately, McMinnville is a bit off the beaten path for many travelers but if your travel plans allow, you will blown away by the size and quality of the exhibits at this outstanding museum. While the "Spruce Goose" is the featured attraction, the number of other aircraft and space vehicles is almost unbelievable. We spent 2 1/2 hours touring the... More

I have been to dozens of aircraft museums. I have been a pilot for over 15 years. This is one of the best locations for plane enthusiasts I've ever visited. I went with my wife, 2 kids and another family of 5 who are friends that live in the area. Everyone loved it and our friends said this is their... More
