Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum

Last month I found myself in McMinnville, Oregon with a couple hours of free time so I decided to visit the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, home of the Spruce Goose. This is a fabulous facility with three main buildings at this time, one for the Spruce Goose and the Aviation and Firearms collections, one for the Space collection and an IMAX  theater in the third building. The property also has various planes and armored vehicles scattered around including a 747 that will sit on top of the new building that will house a water park. Grape vineyards surround the back side of this complex and you can buy grape juice from the grapes in their gift shops.

Next time I'm in Oregon and have spare time I'll be going back to explore this place more, for now you can see what I saw here, enjoy!

Wish I'd known you were in town - could have shown you around all the car scene here.
Evergreen Aviation Museum is awesome. They're also getting a space shuttle soon.
