  • I rated this average only because of its size. I have been to a few air museums in my life-my dad was an airline mechanic his whole life, and so I know what air museums look like. My dad and I even go...  more »

  • Five stars, if you are into aviation history. Pearson Air Field and its Museum are attached to the NPS with the neighboring Fort Vancouver NHS. It is a small (free) museum but the airfield holds a lot of aviation history for the west coast and the Portland OR area. Well worth a trip if into aviation or just interested in Pacific Northwest history. Easily combinable with Fort Vancouver for an afternoon of discovery.
  • Pretty cool little air museum. Free entry is nice. Only 4 stars because it's so small and doesn't have a lot of aircraft.
  • Staff this time we're very unfriendly to kids. We were the only ones there and they yelled at them for saying 'wow' and 'look at that' in excited voices. Very disappointed, doesn't build respect across generations.
  • Great exhibits about the advent of flight. Starting with the wright brothers and through the early technological innovations. Rangers and docent guide you through but you can explore on your own as well. Ignore all the one star reviews. Those have nothing to do with the exhibits here now.
  • It's small, but really cool. The staff is very friendly and the history is amazing.
