Evergreen Museum

By Kasey Richter, Director of PR and Marketing

Today is a special day for the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum. It was on this day, 63 years ago, that our beloved Spruce Goose flew nearly a mile at an elevation of 70 feet in the Long Beach Harbor.

It was a moment that Howard Hughes had dreamed about; a moment where he proved all of his skeptics and critics wrong.

Our Museum can relate to that moment. It was nearly ten years ago that the Evergreen Aviation Museum opened its doors to the general public, showcasing a collection that encompassed less than 50 aircraft.

Now the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum can boast nearly 200 aircraft, spacecraft and exhibits; has expanded to three buildings, including a Space Museum; operates the largest IMAX 3D theater in the Northwest; and is in the process of constructing the new Wings & Waves Water Park, a non-profit educational water park that includes an interactive science museum, four water slides, numerous play structures, and a wave pool.

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by to witness the progress of our amazing facility, and happy anniversary to our lovable Spruce Goose!

For your enjoyment, I’ve included one of our favorite graphics of our Spruce Goose.

Darcee was very pleasant and got me a wonderful finance rate even though my credit was not great. These two were the best.

Dittrich ist schon okay. Hier geht es schließlich nicht um Metal (Untrue!) oder Hip Hop (Sellout!!), die haben eine Karriere vor der Kamera gewählt, und das machen sie jetzt halt auch. Und Boning nehme ich seine Wissensshow krummer als Dittrich dem oft ja doch ganz lustigen Dittsche. Und zumindest die ersten beiden Blind Dates waren auch einfach geil.Aaaber, warum sich mit sowas abgeben, wenn es auch noch Heinz Stuidk/Strnuo Braun gibt?
