Make sure to allow time and energy to visit the Space Museum Building! Our family enjoyed the aviation building with the Spruce Goose and numerous other aircraft, but we were really impressed with the collection of enormous rockets and informative displays in the Space Building....More

I wasn't sure what to expect. Having grown up around everything aeronautical and being dragged in and out of every air museum on the face of this planet since I was young, I thought I may be bored. But no! I could have spent all...More

I became infatuated with the Spruce Goose since watching The Aviator back in 2004. From a young age I've had radio control planes and always loved riding my bike down to the local airfield when the Air force was practising landing their Caribou in our...More

A much bigger collection than I expected. The highlight, of course, is Howard Hughes's Spruce Goose which dominates the main exhibition hall. There are a small number of WW1 and WW2 aircraft but the majority have been sold which was a little disappointing. There's a...More

This was our second visit because it was so good 4 years ago. It is a little tired, but still exciting. They have a lunar lander. This is worth the entrance fee ($40). Every plane you can imagine and a lot more.

Great collection of planes that is comparable to, and combines some of the best elements of, both of the National museums in dc. The space-focused building has excellent panels and some good interactive stuff for the kids.

The museum is huge - three buildings huge and large enough to contain the star attraction, the Spruce Goose. We'd driven by the museum for years but was always in a hurry to get to the coast. This time, we planned a stop and are...More

We spent a few hours at this museum and did not get to see the movie (our fault- we ran out of time). There are actually three buildings associated with the museum. There is a water park in a 4th building but we did not...More

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.

Yes there is a snack bar type of restaurant. We left and got lunch elsewhere and came back in on the same ticket. I think they stamped our hand if I remember. We did have to do something before we left
