The aircraft, vehicles and artifacts in the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum are rare treasures of military technology — a testament to the era’s engineering skill and humanity’s spirit during the world conflicts of the 20th century. On rotation in our working hangar are military artifacts from the United States, Britain, Germany, Soviet Union and Japan, acquired by Paul G. Allen and restored with unparalleled authenticity to share with the public. FHCAM is operated by Friends of Flying Heritage, a 501(c)(3) organization committed to educating people about these rare historic aircraft and artifacts. The museum is currently experiencing rapid growth, bringing in exciting new wonders like the Republic F-105 Thunderchief, de Havilland Mosquito and dozens of new artifacts in 2017.See more..

4.5Veterans Memorial Museum(57 reviews) - Small town museum Saturday: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Spent 1-2 hours Military Museums
This is one of the best smaller military museums I have been to. It is a lot larger on the inside than it appears from the I-5 freeway nearby. It covers all U.S. wars in a general way with specific attention given to vets of the surrounding geographical area. Its collection of smaller hand and crew-fed weapons is vast. The collection includes a Sten machine gun, and I could not recall seeing one before. It has specific hours and a modest entrance fee.See more..

4.5Willapa Seaport Museum(6 reviews) - World class museum showcasingPacific Northwest maritime history Saturday: 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM Spent 1-2 hours Military Museums • Speciality Museums • History Museums
The Willapa Seaport Museum is truly a world class museum. It is full, and I mean FULL of artifacts from every form of seafaring, with much of the attention focused on the Pacific Northwest. It is well organized, beautifully managed and maintained, and meticulously documented. Our volunteer docent took us through the museum pointing out particularly important or interesting parts of each display, then allowed us to go back to displays that especially attracted us. I had little knowledge of much of the seafaring world and learned a great deal. I regret we had not enough time to go through it in greater detail, but I also appreciate that it's close enough that I will plan on spending more time there next time.See more..
