Last Saturday, Andrew and I headed to the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum along with our lovely friends, Zak and Faye. It’s a really neat place, divided into a few large buildings. There’s one building devoted to planes, aviation, and guns, another devoted to space exploration and helicopters, and one more with an Imax theater. There’s also….an indoor waterpark! It has a Boeing 747 on top of the building, with water slides coming out of the exit doors. We decided to save the waterpark for another day, as we spent most of the day exploring the museums.
I was pretty impressed by the museum. We spend hours exploring, admiring big shiny flying machines and interacting with exhibits (space shuttle landing simulation video game? Yay!) I’m already looking forward to checking out the waterpark sometime this summer and wandering around the space museum again. If you live in Oregon, you should definitely take a little trip to McMinnville and check it out!
