Rating (stars) system criteria does not fairly fit this museum. I rate it above average not because of the size and glitz of the displayed assets, but because of the uniqueness of the displays... and the quantity of full-sized aircraft. It's a small museum when measured by square feet... but it's a huge museum if you look at all the items on display.
WWII aircraft identification models... black celluloid at about 1:60 scale are rare. I have never seen them in a museum... except in the Oregon Air & Space Museum in Eugene. Thrie "collection" of those rare artifacts is so extensive that they actually have "extra" examples of them that are available in the gift shop!
The Space Program timeline display actually came from the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Wash. DC. The 1:72 model display of nearly 1,000 unique aircraft fascinates young visitors for extended periods of time. During 13 WWII Oregon aviators achieved "Ace" status. Each is immortalized on the north wall of the main display hangar.
Admission (at $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, $3 for school-aged kids) are the best private museum bargain anywhere. Well worth the hour or two you'll spend on a visit.

The website for the museum is
The hours, admission, and location are on the Contact Us page.
It's located next to the Eugene Airport (Mahlon Sweet Field).
I agree with Martin Bainbridge's comments when I visited back around then. I'll have to stop in to see the new museum.

All the museums sound neat BUT you have missed a great museum (EVERGREEN AVIATION MUSEUM)at McMinnville, OR. You need to add thisa one to you list. Russ.

My wife and I use to travel to various air shows working booths for the Oregon Air & Space Museum back when it was just a dream. We were able to be there at the ribbon cutting ceremony as well. I have several models on display at the museum including the Aircraft carrier Enterprise which was featured in Scale ship Modeler magazine. I now live in Heavener, Oklahoma and miss my friends at the Museum. Eugene is fortunate to have this museum, and the State of Oregon is blessed to have many wonderful aviation museums now..

The Museum also has the world's largest model collection (over 700 and still growing) of the same scale (1:72) all built by one man.

The Thorp T-18 its the best looking plane in the sky. The light blue plane with the dark blue trim is the best looking paint job that I have ever seen. Howard Hughes himself couldnt have made a better looking plane than that one.
