Evergreen space museum

My husband has been wanting to go to the Evergreen space museum for years and we finally did it.  I had envisioned a small, musty type of museum and was surprised at the scale of artifacts and information provided at this amazing museum!  There were 3 buildings on the lot with 2 museums of artifacts (planes and space), a theater, and a water park for kids.

So, I’ll summarize just a few highlights and you can check it all out yourself! 🙂

There are planes and jets outside of the building as you drive up and you can see how enormous just the one building is.

The main building holds a wealth of  general aviation, and world war II fighters with the replicas of the Wright Brothers’ Curtiss JN-4 Jenny, Messerschmitt Me-262 Schwalbe, and Curtiss P-40 Warhawk.

The Spruce Goose is quite a draw for this museum.  It’s amazing how much of the building it took over!

The SR-71 Blackbird was also an interesting exhibit.

The Space Flight building was interesting with rockets, missiles, space capsules, rovers, space probes, satellites, etc.

We didn’t watch any of the movies in the Theater, but that would be interesting on a future visit.  There’s also a Waterpark for the kids!
