    I grew up in Tillamook area...used to watch the blimps fly over when I was a child. So going to the hangers was always such an exciting little adventure.

    I went to the museum last week with my brother - to see again the one remaining building and its exhibits. We go each year and wander through the site saying how we remember...

    This visit was a total disaster!! After paying our entry fee (full price!!) we went through the door into the hanger to see - almost NO exhibits. Dirty - so dirty that it was a shock to see the neglect.

    Don't go. I am sorry to have to give this review to a museum I once loved. I drove 2 hours yesterday only to find that most of the planes--and all the most exciting ones, had been permanently moved to Madras, OR. They didn't tell us this when we entered and didn't reduce the entrance fee, they just let us pay full price to see the 9 or 10 planes they had left and discover a mostly empty museum on our own. When I asked where the planes were the museum curator said to me, "Didn't you see the article in the paper?" I thought, "REALLY?? Are you that...Read More

    The reason there are't many planes right now is because we are going through transitions. We did lower the prices to $9.00 per adult it used to be 12 dollars. That is as low as they could go for now. They need money to keep the doors open for the largest freestanding wooden structure in the world & out of the 6 that are left in this country it is the only one that is available to the public. There will be a new collection there soon.

    Nice little hidden gem in Tillamook. Was surprised at how much they had as far as military/WWII memorabilia in some of the side rooms in addition to the aircraft, much of which you can walk right up to and in some cases even climb into the cockpit. Warning: if you have any gearheads in your party, you might lose them for an hour or more in the "engine room" area. Haha!

The gift shop attendant short-changed me on my purchases, claiming that she couldn't count the cash that I gave her because she had put it in the cash drawer already. Nice trick...

We left in disgust, sickened at what had once been a great little day trip from home (Astoria). There are no exhibits, and the building areas have been roped off so that you can't even see THAT.

All this leaves one to wonder who's collecting the cash that's charged to visitors!! Since it's no longer going toward paying for the leasing of exhibits, and there are no exhibits.

Don't waste time and money here...sad to have to say that after so many years of good visits there in the past.

No one under 60 uses the phone book or reads the newspaper anymore." To be fair, they should reduce the price for museum entrance since most of the collection is missing. Bad form, gentlemen. Be up front with your customers, they will remember how you treated them when you expect them to drive to Madras. Left a sour taste in my mouth.
