Offering a valuable lesson in aviation history, Tillamook Air Museum sits inside a military blimp hangar built during World War II.

The largest clear-span wooden structure in the world, it houses a fighter plane collection that includes the Tomcat F-14A, Douglas A4-B Skyhawk, and MiG-17F. In the hangar's exhibit hall you'll find rare aviation artifacts and authentic World War II medals. Start your aviation adventure at the on-site theater, where you can watch a short film about the history of the hangar and the aircraft displayed inside it.

  • Good burgers and frys. Wife had a good Chef Salad. They also have good clam strips. Nice place for a reasonably priced and quiet lunch.

  • Home to one of the top five privately owned aircraft collections in the nation Tillamook Air Museum is a place you definitely have to see. The hangar is one of the last of 17 built during WWII, it is 7 acres (you can play 6 football games at once in here) with over 30 planes in immaculate condition.
  • Cool place. Its a huge hanger with lots to see. Came here about 16 years ago on a family trip. Good memories. Drove through here for the first time since and it brought back some great memories. I would recommend checking it out.
  • Cool old blimp hangar with old planes/fire trucks/helicopters on display. There's a half-dozen fighter plane cockpits that kids can sit in and push buttons in all day (my daughter played in the cockpits for close to an hour). There's a great museum-style room with plenty of narrative/artifacts for the history buffs and for everyone else there's lots of cool vehicles to check out.
  • There are many vehicles to explore and learn about. It's a fun place to take children and adults.
  • Wow. The dedication that it must have took to build this building is just amazing. It's just so huge! Also, the half of the building that the museum is housed in is packed with good information. If you like old airplanes, and learning some about WW2, then this is definitely a good place to visit.
