  • We had a dinner there for an event we attended. With all that was going on for the event, we didn't have time to walk through the museum, just passed through to the dinner location. It looked like the...  more »
  • Someone recommended this place to us. Are we glad they did! Three and a half acres indoors of planes, cars, and motorcycles. So much to see! They place cars next to planes of the same era. Brilliant. ...  more »

  • Five star for sure! We went there for a kids birthday party and it was also veterans day. They have a separate area for birthdays and a special lunch area to eat - they had food there too! They had many old cars out and were giving rides in them (Ford Model-T for example). Kids loved seeing the old planes (that all are in working condition which is amazing!) and cars. Lots of military planes and jeeps/trucks too! Very nice place; run entirely by volunteers. A definite place to visit a few times during the year.
  • The coolest, greatest collection of rare and antique aircraft and autos. Unlike most museums, you can actually ride in the cars, see the planes run and fly, visit the workshops and volunteer to work on restorations, be a docent, car driver or pilot. I've been to dozens of aviation and automobile museums all over this country and this one is my absolute favorite!
  • Nice collection of vintage airplanes I am looking forward to going back! They have 3 airplane tiedowns reserved for visitors located on the North side of the airport. Also a short walk to Twin Peaks Drive in for Lunch.
  • AN AMAZING MUSEUM. NO WORDS CAN EXPLAIN OR PREPARE YOU FOR HOW UNBELIEVABLE THIS PLACE IS.
  • In geek speak - WAAAM is a sleeper. An almost cheesy exterior belies a truly impressive collection of automobiles, airplanes, trucks, uniforms, medals, weapons, aviation artifacts and on and on. Well worth the admission. The more I saw, the longer I wanted to stay. Enthusiastic, informed, volunteer staff who proffered a wealth of knowledge. A gem along the Oregon Trail.
