Saw the building as we were traveling to Seaside and decided to visit later in the week. The most interesting thing is the building. Only one other blimp hanger is still in existence. It looks like they are trying to rebuild their aircraft collect and...More

We were on a cruise ship tour and the museum was open exclusively for our group. Would have like to have more time at the museum. It was very interesting and somewhat overwhelming by the size.

The Museum is very interesting and for those who understand the Tillamook weather, it is even more amazing that the incredibly large hangers got built in the first place. The second one was done in record time! The space is so very large and it's...More

The Tillamook Air Museum offers lots of interesting WWII information. The museum is one of the two remaining blimp hangars built in 1942 ...more than 1000 feet long. Although the building is not overflowing with WWII aircraft there are lots of other aircraft and engines...More

Not well curated. Mostly small homebuilt aircraft with little historical significance. A collection of engines, some of which are incomplete. Even a row of old farm tractors without any explanation. However, seeing the 1,072' long blimp hangar made entirely of wood was a spectacle. There...More

Few aircraft of any significance. Most have been moved to other air museums. Would not pay to visit again. Used to be a must see on our visits to the Oregon coast.

Few people know that world war two had bases on the west coast that included U.S. military submarine airship forces. This exhibit is in an old hanger that is immense--see it only for the Ah ha.
