Offering a valuable lesson in aviation history, Tillamook Air Museum sits inside a military blimp hangar built during World War II. The hangar, a notable tourist attraction in and of itself, covers an area of nearly 3 hectares (7 acres) and stands 60 m (190 ft) tall. 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.

  • The entrance fee into the huge blimp hanger that doubles for the Air Museum was surprisingly cheap. There are a number of interesting aircraft housed there in various states of repair. About half the ...  read more »

  • The most interesting part of the museum is the building. It's a WWII blimp hanger. Definitely watch the movie that describes the construction of the hanger and it's part in coastal defense during WWII...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Do not waste your time or money. Very few planes on display, the building is pretty dark inside. Really disappointed that space is being taken for people's RV's and boats. This is an awesome building that could have so much more to offer.
  • 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.
  • Great history of Tillamook . Its almost like you can be there. Good food and cool gift shop. More cool things coming don't miss out.
  • 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.
