The McAllister Museum of Aviation is not a big museum, but it has a lot to offer. There are no big aircraft on display here, but there are a lot of artifacts and aviation history! And a couple experimental airplanes in the hangar that’s connected to the museum.
We were the only visitors at the time we were here, so we basically had the entire museum to ourselves. We got a guided tour of the entire museum, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit here.
The museum is dedicated to preserve the legacy of Charles McAllister, a Yakima aviation pioneer and the owner of McAllister Flying Service. They are doing a great job in my opinion!
Museums like this and airport restaurants pretty much doesn’t exist in Norway, so Yakima was awesome!
Small gift shop with some items from the old aviation school and previous airshows (pins), t-shirts, and some other souvenirs.
How much time should you plan to spend here?
You need about an hour, and another hour to visit the nearby restaurant. Maybe a bit more. We spent around three hours here.
You should also stop by the Cubcrafters HQ around the corner.
Reno’s on the Runway
Make sure to stop by the restaurant right next to the museum, Reno’s on the Runway. Delicious food, and awesome views!
