The only problem was that we couldn't get into Airforce One. It was getting some new wheels. Everything is so cool. I couldn't land the Spaceshuttle which was very disappointing. We tried for at least 30 minutes but couldn't do it. I probably should have read the directions but it was fun. It was fun to walk in the 747... More

If you are into flight, space and blue skies this is the place for you. You'll see planes from WWI and you'll finish with the beautiful 787 and the incredible Blackbird. Also you'll satisfy your space curiosity, with lunar rovers, moon rocks, and satellites.

I have been to this museum 3 times now and loved every trip. There is so much to see that it's hard to get it all in one visit. Great for kids or adults. Tons and tons of history there.

Caught the 124 bus from downtown, make sure you have the correct change! It took about 45 mins so be sure to factor that in when visiting the Museum. Really enjoyed seeing everything, kids probably enjoyed the other side with the Dreamliner and Airforce One the best. We stayed most of the day and didn't see everything. Ate at the... More

Main problem is location, with a range of unsatisfactory public transport options. In the end with only limited time in Seattle ahead of a lunch reservation we splurged on a taxi both ways at $25-30 each leg. We arrived bang on 10am opening on a Sunday morning to find it almost deserted. Spent 2.5 hours and failed to see it... More

Family member wanted to go and I wasn't bothered either way however I was blown away at the set up of the factory, amazing to see. Lovely gift shop which wasn't over priced. Cafe with good choice of drinks and snacks. I had a bubble tea. Well worth a visit.

It was raining, so we decided to check this museum out and spend the whole day there. They have lots of information about planes, flying, and WWI and II. Their restaurant had good food too.

I was amazed by the size of their buildings. Definitely a 'to do' if you are interested in aerospace.

A wide variety of aviation related displays, the space shuttle, Air Force 1, a Dreamliner, planes for both World Wars--and people who work at the museum clearly love flying. A good place to visit--and kids love it!

This is a top notch aerospace museum that you should dedicate most of the day for. The two best aerospace museums I have been to are this one and the Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. I had the privilege of touring this museum with my son who is a Boeing employee and was able... More
