Historic Site Specialty Museum
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.

  • Awesome stop. I always love to see monumental achievements and this is one for the area. Huge structure and all wood to boot. The massive arches are impressive and the movie in the little theater helps you appreciate them. Cafe has a classic burger, but I got carried away with the fries and dipping sauce. Quick fun stop
  • Wonderful piece of history. This giant hangar is full of things to see. Great space to get out of weather(and Oregon weather is notoriously variable.) Huge kid friendly areas wear them completely out. If you have a 360 camera this place is a must to use it in.
  • The hanger is fabulous and rich with history. It's entertaining and educational to see the various planes. I thought it would be more WWII centered.
  • The museum is a great place to visit. Lots of history on display. Many displays and planes that the kids can toy around with. Definitely worth visiting. The downside, however, is the price of admission. Very expensive for a family and not much discount for children, which makes me less likely to revisit.
  • An amazing piece of aviation history, right in Tillamook. It is huge, bigger than any modern hangar I've ever worked in. It is mostly hands-on which is great for little ones who want to explore.
