Things for Kids

Kids love the Western Antique Aeroplasne and Automobile Museum.

Kids Love WAAAM

Local schools regularly take field trips to WAAAM, where kids enjoy the rare treat of seeing history come alive. Boy Scout groups and other kid’s groups are also frequent visitors to WAAAM.

Plus in the summer, WAAAM is available to host special events and classes like WAAAM Camp when boys and girls get to spend four days of their summer vacation learning about various aspects of aviation.

Group Events

The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile loves hosting events!

Associations and Other Group Events

We also open up our facility to car clubs, motorcycle clubs, airplane clubs, and other groups whose activities relate to the mission of our museum … which is to preserve, restore, and bring back to life, antiques so that they fly and drive.

Groups such as the Ring Kings, the Pacific Cascade Plymouth Car Club, the Portland Horseless Carriage Club, the Foretravel Motorcade Club, and the Cascade Warbirds are just a few of the many clubs that have had events at WAAAM.

Parades, Fly-Overs, and Traveling Events

The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum loves to give back to the community.

Parades, Fly-Overs, and Traveling Events

One of the best things about WAAAM is that people don’t just come to us, we can go to them! Because all of our automobiles drive and all of our planes fly, we can take them out and show them off in local parades, festivals, school activities and other events.

WAAAM is always a staple in July 4th parade in Hood River, we do fly-over on Memorial Day and Veterans Day and many other community events. Call us at (541) 308-1600 if you would like to schedule something.
