What can I say that's not already been said? The Boeing factory tour is really entertaining and a little mind blowing. It's fun to walk along the catwalk above the assembly lines and see planes being made! The guides are really informative and you will learn a lot. The rest of the exhibits are great too, like the cockpit you... More

The Museum of Flight is excellent. Plan on several hours (or more depending upon your interest) to experience a very wide variety of aircraft from the very basic early planes to ultra modern plans. The historical artifacts depicting different aspects of air travel are well documented and very interesting. The is a Concorde and early Air Force One to walk... More

It certainly pays to have an aviation museum in a company town like Seattle! This modern and growing complex is chock full of a variety of historical airplanes and spacecraft, including an original 747, a Constellation and two aircraft you can actually walk through: a 787 Dreamliner and Concorde. There are plenty of events throughout the year. During our visit... More

We had our 12 year old grandson with us. All of us had a wonderful time at the Museum of Flight. They have all types of aircraft on display-- from the Wright Bros. to space vehicles. We toured inside the original Air Force One 707 of John Kennedy; the Concorde; and the new 787 Boeing airliner. We had all afternoon... More

Visited the museum in July. Interesting exhibits. Good place to spend a few hours. Especially liked being able to walk onto the planes out in the field including a Concorde Easy trip from downtown Seattle.

Going on the hangar tour and watching the planes being built was quite amazing, especially with our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. It is best to book tickets as many people go through the tours and the small exhibition where you can hang out and wait is dated and not really interesting.

I actually only stopped here because I needed to kill some time before getting my brother at the airport. I only had about 2 hours to enjoy the museum. It was not enough time for me. The museum has so much history on flight and space exploration. There were so many cool exhibits. It was very well done and contains... More

The history in this place is amazing! We had a great time as adults and the 3 kids we were with had a blast. We wondered through the various actual planes, space and historical exhibits. We loved being able to tour a Air Force One, a Concord & new 787 Dreamliner. The restaurant is decently priced as it is in... More

Good for tweens and teens too. So much to see. Eat elsewhere though. So much information at each exhibit. You really feel that you know more about the history of flight after visiting. Easy buys connection right out the door to get downtown.
