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.

We had a good time visiting this museum. The person we bought our admission from was great. She was very helpful and informative. The museum does have some unique aircraft, but is fairly small compared to other air museums. They have an expansive WW2 exhibit with handmade models donated to the museum by a local person. They also had a Mini-Guppy out front open to tour. The bottom line is we had fun, and would absolutely visit again.
I thought this was really a neat museum. They had so much to see and so much thought has gone into the exhibits! Right now, Top Gun Maverick is huge at the box office and it was so awesome to see an actual F-14 that was used in the first movie! Definitely well worth your time to visit!! The building itself is gigantic and it's amazing to think of it housing the blimps in its prime!
