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 3-D digital theater. In addition, there are more than 200 historic aircraft, spacecraft and exhibits on
display, along with artwork and traveling exhibits.


In 2011, the museum opened the 70,000 square-foot Wings & Waves Waterpark, an educational waterpark that includes 10 waterslides, a wave pool and a children’s museum dedicated to teaching students about the power of water.

Located three miles southeast of McMinnville on Highway 18, across from the McMinnville Airport, the museum is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the waterpark is open varied hours depending on the season. The museum and waterpark are closed for Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and Easter. Check the Web site for curent hours and admission prices.
