There are many reasons to visit the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, but only one that really matters. The Spruce Goose! The world’s largest wood airplane, folly or masterpiece (or both) of crazed billionaire Howard Hughes. Every museum wants at least one exhibit worthy of a postcard, and the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum has the biggest one of all. The centerpiece or “crown jewel” of the Evergreen Aviation Museum is a plane known around the world as the “Spruce Goose.”
Other features range from the Wright brothers’ work to a 2,000 mile an hour Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, via all things aeronautical.
