“You got a problem-Extremely rude staff member”

Port Townsend Aero Museum
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We drove 3hrs and we're treated like we were bothering a older 5'5 ish staff member by asking about the museum aircraft. He treated us like trespassers on his private property, tho we paid full admission! I'm a pilot w over 3000 hrs and have been to large and small museums on multiple continents. This was the worst. I could go on, but you get the picture. Management needs to fix this!

The planes are regularly flown and are in remarkable shape! The Beech Staggerwing is a thing of beauty as is the Ryan PT22! Give them a visit, My wife even enjoyed the visit!

This is not the Smithsonian or the Boeing Museum but it is a beautifully set up local attraction which is obviously well run by aficionados dedicated to vintage aircraft. There are a limited number of exhibits but they are beautiful specimens most of which are still in flying condition. If you are into civil aircraft from the first half of the 20th century you will enjoy this museum.

I particularly liked the Bowlus Baby Albatross and the Ryan PT-22 Recruit which looked like it just rolled off the assembly line. Also not to be missed is an extensive collection of aviation art which is displayed on a walk way surrounding the hanger where the real aircraft are presented. From the upper deck you get a great perspective of the whole building and "aerial" views of the exhibits.

All in all it's well worth the trip to this little gem. Admission is $10 which is well worth it. Recommended.

The museum is immaculate with all airplanes well displayed. Their youth program is truly impressive.
