Plan Your Visit

Check out our cool guide tower. This tower would have originally been used to help guide pilots through the Columbia River Gorge. It is now in the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum parking lot.

We are glad you found us! Everyday at WAAAM is a new adventure. The museum collection is housed in over 2.5 acres of indoor hangar facility. Plan to spend at least an hour or two to get an idea of what is here. For the enthusiast, a day can be too short to see all of the cars, planes, motorcycles, military vehicles, and more. Listen to the stories, talk to a docent, recount your own memories. Step back in time with the Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum.

The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum even has a locomoble on display.

We have a gift shop, snacks, a comfortable lounge, and clean restrooms so you can pace your visit. Wheelchairs and walkers are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Pets are not allowed in the museum.  Please make arrangements for your pet's comfort, especially during summer.

Our children's area is a wonderful hands on exploration space to be enjoyed by all (with adult supervision, of course).

Directions

From Portland

Travel East on I-84. Take Exit 62 and turn right onto Cascade Ave. Turn right at the first traffic signal onto 13th St. 13th St. joins with 12th St. and then becomes Tucker Rd. From there it is only 1.5 miles to Air Museum Rd. The museum is on the right side. Look for the vintage Drive-In theater sign at our entryway. We are right by the airport so think flat open area with no trees.  Google Map
