Owner description: Located approximately 25 miles north of Seattle, The Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour is the only public tour of a commercial jet assembly plant in North America. Explore the interactive exhibits and displays in our 28,000-square-foot Aviation Center Gallery; then take a 90-minute tour of the Boeing plant where you can watch 747s, 777s, or 787 Dreamliners being assembled right before your eyes. There is a minimum height requirement of 4 feet (122 cm) for children participating in the Boeing Tour. To avoid disappointment please make sure to check height before purchasing tickets. This restriction is strictly enforced. ADA accessible tours are offered twice daily. Call in advance to ensure proper accommodations. In the Future of Flight Aviation Center Gallery, the Family Zone is home to a number of different activities, all designed around a theme of aircraft manufacturing and assembly. Activity carts let visitors build a simple aircraft model, or use our Lego (and Lego-compatible) pieces to express new ideas about aircraft design. A kid-sized airport and aircraft allow future pilots of all ages to practice their take-offs and landings. Currently, the Family Zone is also home to a highly engaging, hands-on nanotechnology exhibit, and our new Bernoulli Table, an exciting interactive experience that teaches the relationship between the velocity of air and the pressure it exerts. Coloring and reading activities are also available, and drop-ins are welcome. Admission is free for ticket holders and for Future of Flight Foundation Members.

the facts that we learned were very interesting. the factory for a start was huge no thats an understatement it was MAMMOTH,we saw the new 787 being made and about to be painted and the 747s in the beging and the 777s were just on the other side. in fact I've been a 777 before, about 8 times a year so it was very interesting seeing my plane rides in the making.
i absolutely positively <3 this trip

“Too bad about no cameras”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

We went on a guided tour of the Boeing commercial aircraft plant. Very informative, setup for the tour was good, as there were lots of viewing opportunities. Only wish I could have taken pictures, but was told the no camera policy was due to a request from the employees on the floor.

This tour is a must if you are in the area. Our tour guide was very informative and was open for questions at every stop. I was and still am simply amazed at this place. Remember no phones, backpacks, purses or cameras. They do provide lockers for these items during the tour.

This was a wonderful experience. The tour was just the right length (90 minutes), and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I think the tour provided a comprehensive overview of Boeing and how they make planes!
