Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum
After a long day at conference, let loose and act like a kid again at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. Just South on I-5, this museum is approximately an hour from Portland, but worth the drive.
The Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum is not your typical air museum. Not only does this museum display interactive military aircraft, space flight, “The Spruce Goose” the largest airplane ever constructed, Helicopters and a firearms collection, but this museum also has a water park.
Wings and Waves Waterpark is an indoor educational waterpark consisting of classic Evergreen Museum aircraft and space building design features. This 70,000 square feet waterpark is topped by a massive Evergreen International Aviation B747-100 aircraft on the top of the building, this aircraft structure also serves as a waterslide.
If you are not amazed already, just wait, there is more to this air museum. This museum also has a theatre. The Evergreen Theater provides movie-goers with the sharpest digital images possible in both 2D and 3D, with the clearest digital sound system. This is a superior cinema experience that you will not want to miss out on. From showing newer movies to older, but goodie movies, you will be sure to find a comfy chair, some popcorn and your favorite movie to enjoy in a whole different light.
You will probably be a bit famished after this fun-filled day of touring the interactive air and space crafts to riding the waves at the waterpark and after enjoying your favorite movie. The Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum will satisfy your cravings by providing local farm-to-table favorites on their menu at the Liberty Belle Café and Cosmo Café. Here at these cafes, you will be able to, as the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum would say, “refuel in style.”
Stop by and enjoy the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum, where it’s OK to act like a kid again. You will be glad you did!
