A West Coast Must See!


   As we near Spring, I know a lot of you are trying to decide where to go for Spring Break, so here is just one suggestion that I strongly recommend, great for adults and children alike!  The Tillamook Air Museum, is located just off the Oregon Coast Hwy, in Tillamook, Oregon.


   The Museum was not at all what I was expecting.  When you first enter, you are greeted by the front desk which also serves as the gift shop check-out. We were greeted by a smiling face and all I had to say was, “We are new.” and we didn’t have to ask another question the entire time we were there.  He advised us to first go watch the video, telling the history of the museum and boy, was that great advice! It really highlighted the entire self-tour!


There is a lot of WWI, WWII and Vietnam memorabilia and so much detail about where these planes served and the heroes who flew them.  It was impressive how many photos they had and it made the experience seem so intimate. The story of a mascot receiving a formal burial because he was so loved was so moving that I had to take a picture of the story!


(Please excuse the photography. I am just learning how to use my new camera.)

   While there is much to see outside of the aircraft, they truly are an amazing sight to see, and there is absolutely no way not to see them! There are small aircraft…Image

Large aircraft…


Foreign Aircraft…


And Aircraft that can ride the waters…


It didn’t stop at aircraft either. There were rigs and motors and props and all sorts of things to look at! The list just goes on and on.



Don’t forget to grab a bite to eat and visit the gift shop before you go!


   Oh! I almost forgot! While you’re in the area, you may want to go visit the Pacific Ocean. The best path is the Scenic byway on the Netarts Highway due west out of Tillamook. Beautiful drive!

Happy Traveling!
