The Second Saturday of each month, the Western Antique Airplane & Automobile Museum (WAAAM) in Hood River, Oregon, opens the doors to roll out and run some of its antique airplanes and cars.
Visitors can watch airplane operations up close and may get to ride in old cars too.
The museum is one of the last “living museums” out there. This means that museum officials still drive the cars and fly the planes, which is a great way to keep history alive.
The museum’s collection of aircraft includes a 1917 Curtiss JN-4D Jenny featuring an OX-5 90-hp engine, a Piper Cub, and WACO collections, Aeronca collections, Stearman collections, and many more aircraft.
There are also more than 130 cars, including a 1914 Detroit Electric, a Ford Model A, a Packard, a Studebaker, even a Locomobile.
It also has a large collection of motorcycles, including Harley Davidsons, Indians, Cushmans, and more.
The museum is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with Second Saturday activities from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Adult admission $14, kids 5-18 $6, kids under 4 are free.
