We went here as it was something we came across in the area we were staying, and we had a terrific time. Its a museum full of different planes and their history. I especially loved learning about the famous Spuce Goose, which is displayed here.

A little on the pricey side, this museum has a great selection of vintage airplanes. Of course, the centerpiece is the Spruce Goose which looms over all the other aircraft in the building. There is a small restaurant for snacks and nearby is an indoor...More

Our visit to the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum was a real surprise. I've been to the Smithsonian Air and Space museum in Washington D.C. and frankly, especially considering how convenient it is, this was as interesting! Well worth the time and money.

Lots of planes to see, but the highlight is the Spruce Goose. Amazing air and space museum in Oregon. Water park looks like fun. And, there is an IMAX screen as well.

First class place. Takes a good amount of time to see everything. Disappointed in the Spruce Goose. Really nice theater. Pricey, but worth it. Also try the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field in Seattle. It has better stuff, but is a bit smaller. Enjoyed...More

With the movie, at least two hours. This is a minimum, and you would be somewhat rushed.

Yes there is a snack bar type of restaurant. We left and got lunch elsewhere and came back in on the same ticket. I think they stamped our hand if I remember. We did have to do something before we left
