  • Absolutely awesome! I really recommend you check out this air museum! I found this place to be very interesting and informative! My personal favorite jets were Lockheed SR -71 blackbird and A-10 Warthog. And of course the Spruce goose was interesting, you can go inside of it, but you have to pay 30$ extra to get the whole tour of that plane. If you pay the extra you can take four people on the tour, I believe. I highly recommend that you check out this air museum.
  • The scope of the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum is truly breathtaking. There are four main structures: the water park, the air museum, the evergreen theatre, and the space museum. I only went to the air & space museum, but the grandeur and quality of the exhibits were truly great and educational. The service is staffed by some knowledgeable members who were veterans or are currently commercial pilots, who are very friendly and will happily answer any questions. In the space museum, there is also a free aircraft carousel that the kids will enjoy!!!
  • Such a cool place. Made my heart heavy for all we've lost but so much respect. The volunteers and staff were super nice and helpful. The Spruce Goose was breathtaking. Pictures don't do it justice. The kids were entertained and all in all a great place to visit.
  • Well worth the trip. 25 or 30 bucks to get in but I'm happy to support such a great display. This place is jaw dropping. I wouldn't consider myself an aviation nerd but this place had me in awe the whole time. The hanger would be awesome with just the war planes and jets but it has THE SPRUCE GOOSE! This is by far the best museum I've been to in many years if not my whole life. 10/10
  • This was an amazing place to take my family. So educational and fun! I haven't had this much fun at a museum before. Definitely worth the visit! They also had an amazing gift shop and the most awesome employees. Everyone was friendly and helpful, great sense of humor. Really made us feel welcome!
