Tillamook Air Museum is still there, http://www.tillamookair.com
. Took our grandson there last summer. The museum is in a WWII blimp hanger. It is an amazing structure. The planes are cool too especially the huge cargo plane, Aerospacelines Mini-Guppy, that you can go into. Not all of the planes were there when we were there but we had a great time.
If you have on the east side of the Cascades, and like airplanes, stop in at Erickson Aircraft Collection, http://www.ericksoncollection.com
, in Madras Oregon. Have not been to this one.
The other air museum in Oregon is the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in Mcminnville. http://evergreenmuseum.org/the-museum/a ... -exhibits/
. Have not been to this one either but hear it is pretty good. The Spruce Goose is on display here.
