Fodor's Expert Review Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum and Wings and Waves Waterpark

McMinnville Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose, the largest plane ever built and constructed entirely of wood, is on permanent display, but if you can take your eyes off the giant you will also see more than 45 historic planes and replicas from the early years of flight and World War II, as well as the postwar and modern eras. Across the parking lot from the aviation museum is the space museum with artifacts that include a German V-2 rocket and a Titan missile, complete with silo and launch control room. The adjacent Wings and Waves Waterpark (separate admission) has 10 waterslides, including one that starts at a Boeing 747-100 that sits on top of the building. The IMAX theater is open daily and features several different films each day. There's a museum store and two cafés, as well as ongoing educational programs and special events.
