The Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum is best known as the home of the world's largest wooden flying boat, the "Spruce Goose," the SR-71 "Blackbird," the Titan II SLV Missile and Oregon's largest IMAX 3D theater. In addition, there are more than 200 historic aircraft, spacecraft and exhibits on
display, along with artwork and traveling exhibits.


In June 2011, the museum opened the 70,000 sq. ft. Wings & Waves Waterpark, an educational waterpark that includes ten waterslides, a wave pool and a children's museum dedicated to teaching students about the power of water.


The museum is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, except when it is closed for Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and Easter. The museum is located about three miles southeast of McMinnville on Highway 18, across from the McMinnville Airport. Check the website for admission prices and waterpark hours.
