Great attraction

The selection of planes to view is extensive as well as the NASA exhibits. A great museum for the whole family to visit.

Awesome museum. Fabulous range of aircraft. Space shuttle trainer was the best to get a feel of what it's like to be an astronaut aboard. Great staff and very friendly. Going aboard the first Air Force One was a special experience. The museum is a must stop.

They have space ships and rockets. They have air force one... More

This museum is an amazing collection of aero memorabilia. I had always dreamed of travelling on a concord so to see it was almost as good! With the fabulous WW1 and WW2 collection you need at least 3-4 hours to see it all. I travelled here on the bus which took 20 minutes or so through industrial/suburb areas but the... More

This place was fantastic. Some of the best airplane staging l've seen, especially in the WWll exhibition. Vey cool! If you're into your airfix models this is well worth a look!

The flight consisted of a tour of the Boeing plant which was very interesting. You can see people building the 747, 777 and the new Dreamliner. You are viewing from an observation deck above all the action. So you can see the whole plant with planes in all stages. Back at the flight museum there is an aviation ride for... More

This is a MUST SEE! All museums should visit this place and learn from it. This was an exhibition spread over a big area (and about to get bigger) that was well set out, very interesting and easy to spend a lot longer in than you had planned (5 hours). I expected some 'boring bits' but No, the whole exhibition... More

This is on the outskirts of Seattle. You can get there easily by bus. It is one of the tickets in the City Pass and I recommend it. Probably not as good as the hanger in Pearl or the National Air and Space Museum in DC but a must if in Seattle. The outside area has a Concorde and a... More

I wasn't sure if I wanted to do this. But am so delighted I did. As a pilot it just was amazing. The full history is there and whatever age you are you will enjoy. You also were able to see the airstrip being used. Hear the discussion with the Control Tower. The start are amazing. They wanted you to... More
