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.

I highly recommend the boeing factory tour. The 90 minute tour is very informative and interesting, there is a little walking required and a few steps but not bad. If you've been on an automotive factory tour the way they make the jets is completely...More

It's incredible to see the production of those beautiful aircraft. Our tour guide was amazingly nice and welcoming. She knew every aspect of the factory and, of course, of the planes. As a big aviation enthusiast, it was a dream come true for me. Not...More

The 90-minute Boeing tour in Mukilteo was very interesting and I would recommend it to everyone. But at no time before starting the tour did anyone warn us that we would be outside in the pouring rain & cold several times during the tour. I...More

We arrived early for our tour so spent 20 minutes in the Aviation Center. Not much to experience or learn but do get a sense for how big the aircraft really are. The tour itself is what inspired me to go all the way out...More

Our guide was Greg - really excellent! Only problem with this tour is that a lot of time is spent on buses - to and from the factory and then also from one end to the other. This really cuts down on time looking at...More

Come in comfortable walking shoes, nice to see but a big place with a fair bit of walking. Still really interesting to see.

The overall experience was well worth the entry fee, which is nominal. You were not permitted to bring an electronic device of any kind or a purse on the tour but you have access to use free locking lockers for the tour. Which I found...More

Tour was great and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. I only wished that we got more information and spent more time learning about how the components of the plane are put together. I feel like we breezed thru it.

I do not think they allow children at that age. I have seen restrictions on the height of the child.
