At Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, you'll see numerous military and civilian aircrafts and space machinery. The main attraction, the 1947 Spruce Goose, is a wooden aircraft and boat at the same time with the largest wingspan of any aircraft in history. You'll discover the two-story high centerpiece of the space flight center, the Titan II missile, here as well. The exhibited SR-71 Blackbird is the fastest piloted aircraft, achieving speeds of nearly 3,530 km/h (2,193 mph). For fun, try out the interactive moon landing simulator. The waterpark at the site features 10 rides, four of which begin inside a real Jumbo Jet.

Absolutely awesome! I really recommend you check out this air museum! I found this place to be very interesting and informative! My personal favorite jets were Lockheed SR -71 blackbird and A-10 Warthog. And of course the Spruce goose was interesting, you can go inside of it, but you have to pay 30$ extra to get the whole tour of that plane. If you pay the extra you can take four people on the tour, I believe. I highly recommend that you check out this air museum.
The scope of the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum is truly breathtaking. There are four main structures: the water park, the air museum, the evergreen theatre, and the space museum. I only went to the air & space museum, but the grandeur and quality of the exhibits were truly great and educational. The service is staffed by some knowledgeable members who were veterans or are currently commercial pilots, who are very friendly and will happily answer any questions. In the space museum, there is also a free aircraft carousel that the kids will enjoy!!!
