Today’s tour takes guests back in time…Time when flight was a novelty rather than a daily mode of transportation, when the automobile required a crank, and power steering was almost a century away. We will take you on an exclusive tour to the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum, also known as the WAAAM. Enjoy a guided tour of this facility offering an extensive collection of over 130 antique cars, motorcycles, and hangers full of meticulously restored aeroplanes from as far back as 1917. After taking a step back in time you will have the opportunity to do some shopping in the downtown Hood River area!
