So many airplanes and old cars to see here. Self guided tour let's you move at your own pace. Some items have more information than others. Lots of walking so be ready for that...which was nice...

Really great museum very rare aircraft on display and also Automobiles and trucks. Also they have quiet collections of toys. They have some of the most knowledgeable staff I have ever encountered an aircraft Museum. Lots to see, plan on spending hours.
This is an Oregon masterpiece. The Aviation world is better because this place exists and maintains key signature planes that tell the story of our we got to the planes and jets in the sky today. Take your time. Take lots of photos. Take friend or two and then tell all your friends and family where you went. Oh yeah. And car buffs... they have a some very nice cars in the barn too! Don't miss those while you are there.
