My wife took me here for my birthday a couple months ago, and it's so much fun to visit the Museum of Flight and see all the history and exhibits! From the old Boeing factory, the WW exhibits and planes, to the more modern planes and exhibits, it's a really fun experience. If you enjoy flying or airplanes at all,... More

This museum captures the history of flight from the "how did it start?" to the "what will they think of next?" The red barn has the tools that were used to make early airplanes. There are planes to walk through, videos, flight simulators, explanation of flight traffic control, and view of active runway. Lots and lots of historic planes and... More

We hopped on the Metro from downtown Seattle to visit this museum. We arrived as the museum opened and spent the entire day wandering around the exhibits. There was so much to see and do we could have done with an extra day. My particular highlights were the Air Traffic Control Tower and the Boeing history. The on-sight cafe was... More

Amazing time and worth a visit. Coming from Vancouver, BC... we showed our BCAA card and you save when buying entrances onsite or online. Take in the history and lots of photo ops. Moving experience to board Air Force One.... its all included in the entrance price. Expect 3 hrs min to cover it all.... non-rushed.

The museum of flight is a must-go for aviation lovers. However, Regular people can enjoy the exhibits. There are several sections in the museum, including space exploration, a space gallery, military aircraft used in WWI and WWII, and models of all sorts. Just a reminder that there are two buildings for the museum, one on either side of the road.... More

This museum has a very high ranking an tripadviser so we decided to go, and we didn't regret our decision. It is very big, covering the history of the dawn of plane production to modern space exploration. We even went on the space shuttle compartment tour. The museum took us the entire day.
