An additional 27,000 square feet of display space will be built at WAAAM Air and Auto Museum.

Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum is adding an additional half acre of display space. The Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum in Hood River, Oregon announces that construction is underway on an expansion of its display buildings. The additional space will serve mainly for automobile related displays and an enlarged WAAAM SMART Kids Zone.

The museum, established in 2006 and opened to the public in 2007, has shown strong growth in its six years of operation. The WAAAM collection now comprises more than 120 cars and 30 motorcycles plus military vehicles and tractors and it will soon reach 100 airplanes. With few exceptions, these objects are operable and many are demonstrated in action on the Second Saturday of each month.

Design Structures has been selected for the construction project. Opening of the new space is planned for November 2013.
