We visited this museum two years ago by ourselves and it was such an amazing experience that we talked about bringing our grand children the next time. So, recently we took our two young grand children 8 & 10. They were so enchanted and engaged going through this spectacular museum and watching the IMAX movies they offer. We had our... More

We have been before, but were very excited to get back and see the newer additions. We had free admission due to our reciprocal membership with our museum at home. The Spruce Goose is always amazing to see and they have a good selection of planes. The space gallery is very extensive and I was very impressed. They have put... More

I've got to say that the staff of this establishment makes it special. They are all friendly and VERY passionate about the museum and its contents. If you've been to other similar museums, say the one in Seattle for instance, there are similarities in that they all have vintage planes, but again, the staff makes the difference. But in addition,... More

The little ones loved it!!! There is so much for the little ones to touch and look at. And they loved looking at the big planes too. There are many planes to look at outdoors too. Bring your lunch and some drinks because there are many places outside in the shade to enjoy so you can save a few bucks... More

This is a great museum and with the Spruce Goose as the centerpiece it makes it super. Plan to spend some time there. We only had three hours and could have spent many more. We saw a very good movie about fighter pilots shot while one pilot was going through combat training and it was really a good show that... More

We had never heard of this museum before and only allowed an afternoon to visit. There are 3 buildings housing an extensive array of aircraft well positioned and identified from the Wright Brothers through to today's high powered military jets. We wished we had more time! The first building with the Spruce Goose had a tour led by a docent... More

I'm surprised I haven't reviewed this place yet. This place is amazing! The drive in is scenic AF, the abundance of aircraft on display is impressive, and the water slides coming out of a B747 are an experience to have. 5 stars!

We at first thought the ticket pricing was a bit overpriced we were wrong. The campus has 2 of the best air space museum that we have ever seen. 3 hours wasn't enough time to see everything. We also enjoyed the 3D movie at the theater on the campus

What an extraordinary place! I am a fan of aviation but had never heard of McMinnville. Traveling for wine-tasting, my wife and I happened to come across this place and couldn't believe the quality of the place and the exhibits. Not only the one and only Spruce Goose but an SR71 Blackbird - surely the coolest looking plane ever produced.... More
