Spend over 3 hours here, lots of history and a great experience. Great having lunch with an active airport to enjoy watching all types of aircraft? If your child (or adult) loves aeroplanes it's a must see. From June 2016 a new static display to be opened, well worth the money.

Great flight museum! Offers a lot of Seattle based flight history as well as general flight history. Well put together, unique one off planes and a fun flight simulator for the kids to get sick in!

We were so excited to go here since we are both into aviation. We learned a lot going through the museum. The Red Barn was our favorite part! There is a gift store and a cafe to take a break in. I would take at least 2-3 hours to go through the entire place.

With plenty of parking and reasonable rates, this is an attraction in Seattle that is not to be missed. Airplanes everywhere, chock full of history, I really recommend. Get on air force one, and the Concord, see for yourself!

Even my wife enjoyed the Museum of Flight .... well, parts of it. Lots civil and several military aircraft, with a great many more military to e available soon. It's an entertaining brief history of flight, with many interpreters who are anxious to share information with visitors. I've seen SR71 before, but not with this much ancillary information, and side... More

Awesome and worth the money! There was a lot of information, and places that people would explain things. You move at your own pace.

Well laid out exhibit with masses to see and do. Some sections under construction when we were there but we could see the experimental passenger liners through the fence including the Dreamliner. Awesome gift shop and cafe.

I was in Seattle to visit friends and made a stop at the Museum of Flight - A Must Stop for History Buffs! The exhibits in this facility are just outstanding from the WWI and WWII collection to the space display, every one is excellent!

My dad worked for the USAF for several years and both my grandfathers were pilots himself in the Army Corps and the USAF for many years. I simply love aviation and it's history because of them. This was one of my favorite places to visit in Seattle!
