    What an unexpected find on my way to Portland. Lots of the Hotels I wanted were full or priced higher than I wanted so I ended up in McMinnville Oregon. Now that I was there I looked around for something to visit the next day, and WOW! What a museum of flight. As I only had a few morning hours I examined all the exterior planes and was impressed. Even a MIG 29! The incredible find was that the Spruce Goose was here! Well I loved the drive into the museum, as the road is painted as it it was a runway! Nice touch. Then the planes on the outside are all around the giant hanger that houses the spruce goose and LOTS of other planes!. When the museum opened I only had an hour before I needed to meet someone at the Portland airport. So, for 25 bucks I chose to be content with mty exterior portion of the museum, and a glance into the big hanger. This looks to me like a place to spend the day, with all the displays inside, and a giant theatre next door. I will come back to this one sometime. so till then, happy travels. This is definitely worth the side trip it you are in Portland.

    The museum is very impressive I must say. But, I paid $25 pp for my son and I to see the Spruce Goose. I almost walked away when I saw the price. The to add insult to injury as I reached the top of the stairs and went inside the SG, I found myself in a glassed off room where a sign read, for $25 more I could get a picture in the cockpit of the plane. Really?! If I’d known that I wouldn’t have even paid the admission. Talk about bait and switch. A little unethical too not to be informed before entering the museum, say on a sign at the entrance maybe. Ruined the rest of my museum experience .

    I feel that this museum is amazing. For being a private museum, it is very well priced. I think people don’t realize that this is not a government organization, they do not receive any kind of government funding. Only through donations and admission tickets can they stay open. It truly amazes me how people don’t understand that. They also offer multiple discounts, groupons, and year long memberships that are more than worth it if you’re willing to look. As for the Spruce Goose tours, they cannot have it free to the public. As many of the planes are artifacts, they would quickly be destroyed by the wear and tear if they were open to everyone. It’s an amazing museum with great employees, volunteers, and exhibits.

    Undeniably the greatest air museum/water park in the world. For two hours of my life, I felt like a little kid again. The best fathers day I have ever had!

    This a Favorite Place for us to take friends and visitors. Our GrandBoys, aged 7 & 9 absolutely love visiting. They find something new each time. We enjoy the IMAX theatre as well. If you are planning on multiple visits a family pass for a year is a great money saver.
