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.

  • Outstanding!! I have always been interested in WWII as to the weapons used. The WWII room was quite interesting as to the way it was arranged. Issue with this room is the lighting. Would have been a great asset if able to see the backdrops as was a lot of information. Kids will enjoy the planes and the mock ups of the cockpits as they can sit in them and pretend they are flying. Place is huge and walking can be a little long but good way for kids to burn off some energy. Advise all to see the summary in the theater as explains why and how this place came to be. Fascinating story and pictures in the room after exiting the theater gives one quite the interesting array of different times of war. There is a cafe that has pretty basic items but was not open when we were there. Gift shop had a decent variety of items and prices were not unreasonable. Overall a great time and highly recommend this place as a good experience for people on vacation and also Oregonians to check it out.
  • It's a fair price to get in at roughly $11 per adult. It was a great experience to actually be able to go in the training cockpits. The massive size of the facility is overwhelmingly cool and will leave you in awe. The history of the structure itself is neat to learn and what went into it to for the construction is impressive. It does have a pretty decent gift shop and looks like it has a restaurant but that was closed, which was fine as that wasn't the reason to go!
