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 a 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 Institute of Flight members.

Interesting tour of Boeing museum and how the jets are assembled. Viewing was from a distance and photos were not allowed. It would have been nice to get at least one close up.

Thanks for visiting us from New Jersey.

We hope you were able to get up close to the airplane parts and pieces in the Future of Flight Gallery and that you got your free photo with the factory in the background compliments of The Boeing Store. The photo booth is located in the center of the Gallery.

We booked our tour online the day before. It was a very reasonable price for an excellent tour.
The tour leader was very knowledgable and gave out so much information. I wish we could remember it all.
Flight Center and the tour were fascinating. Only disappointment was that we were not allowed to take photographs on the tour - understable of course in today's world.
I would definately recommend this tour to families and children over four feet tall.

Time well spent and an enjoyable and informative tour for anyone. More so, it is definitely a great place to take your children and/or grandchildren to let them see for themselves what happens when imagination and ideas become a reality. Exposure to success is truly meaningful to our children especially when related to the fact that it just doesn't happen without skilled and well trained personnel under the supervision of dedicated, enthusiastic and result oriented leadership. Great job Boeing!
