The Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum is an aviation museum which displays a number of military and civilian aircraft and spacecraft, most notably, the Hughes H-4 Hercules "Spruce Goose". The museum is located in McMinnville, Oregon, across the street from the headquarters of Evergreen International Aviation. Oregon Route 18 separates the museum from the company operations and McMinnville Municipal Airport (KMMV). An IMAX theater opened in 2007, and a second exhibit hall focusing on the Titan II ICBM and space technology opened in 2008.

Are you sure? Is it bigger than the C-5 or the Russian cargo jets?

By the way, Evergreen Air used to be the CIA airline, mostly during Viet Nam...

Was there recently, forgive the cameraphone panorama. At least it gives you some sense of the space inside? Enjoy!

Yes, that is a Titan II rocket nestled up next to it and a Blackbird (and drone) sheltered under one wing. The Evergreen Aviation Museum houses an incredible number of aircraft and no matter where you are inside, it's nearly impossible to get the full Spruce Goose into frame... Truly amazing and well worth the stop if you're ever in the area?
