This was the first visit for myself and children but a repeat visit for my husband. So much had changed since his last visit. We had no idea how much would be in the museum and were very surprised. There are several buildings and so much to see and do. Honestly, come when they open, that will allow you time... More

I give this place my highest recommendation. It's a must see. Just be sure to give yourself at least 4 hours to check this place out. I didn't, and I missed out on the space portion of the exhibit. Bummer, but it was my fault. This place will blow your mind.

There's so much too see and learn. Plan to spend the whole day there. This is a child-friendly place!

We were astounded when we saw the buildings that housed the exhibits. Today we spent 6 hours at the attraction and didn't get an opportunity to see a movie. We also couldn't walk around outside due to the rain but good fortune for us had information placards inside for the outside exhibits. Do not question the cost - just pay... More

As a private pilot I am always looking around when passing airport. As we drove past the McMinnville Municipal Airport I looked over to see 8 propellers through a glass hanger door, to my surprise it was the SPRUCE GOOSE. This legendary plane was in full view in the hanger. That plane alone is worth the visit! There are several... More

Don't miss the hurricane movie. When told later on in life to evacuate an area because a hurricane is coming, you won't hesitate! I was counting all the different aircraft I have been a passenger in over the last 50 years. Many were when I was in the military and it brought back many memories. As a military history buff,...

Seeing the enormous Spruce Goose in person and learning about its history is a great draw for people of all ages. I particularly enjoyed all of the old planes displayed so beautifully. The volunteer staff are very helpful.

A well planned and enjoyable time to enjoy tasting new wines and explore new spirits and art. The environment was fascinating, filled with the history of aviation.

The venue is exceptional and facinating for all who attend. The staff who schedule and arrange events is sloppy and careless. They never knew who did what and made the planning portion of my event very unpleasant and time consuming. The catering can be completely ignored if you schedule an event. Morning pastries were Safeway boxed pastries. Luncheon sandwiches still... More

We visited in the fall/autumn of 2016 from Western Australia and as part of our Oregon & Northern California road trip we took a driver (1 hour) from Portland to visit the museum. The drive was easy once out of the city, and easy to find. The museum has 3 buildings; 1. Water park - you can see which one... More
