I saw this museum when it first opened some years ago and though they were half shut-down in the process of moving this Fall, it was still a treat. Usually there are many displays and a good number of aircraft to view (given the small size of the place) but this time we had only three aircraft left and half... More

This is a superb opportunity to see the old warbirds. These planes are still flown by local pilots. The pilots are often present and happy to tell you all about the planes in the Museum.

Having recently visited both the Museum of Flight in Seattle and the Heritage Flight Collection in Everett, we weren't expecting much from this smaller museum in Bellingham.

the flight museum is a small treasure located next to bellingham's international airport. for anyone interested in history - you will find much to study and fascinate you here. if you are fortunate enough to visit when there is a fly-in with historic planes coming in from other parts of the country, it's something you will never forget.

They ask for a donation which is a cheap family outing. There are several rooms including a large room with actual planes and items for the kids to look... More

For a small-town flight museum, this place was more impressive than I expected. Founded in 1996 by Apollo 8 astronaut Maj. General Bill Anders, the museum hosts a collection of artifacts from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf War. But what I really enjoyed was the up-close look and touch of some vintage aircraft, all in flyable condition. You can... More
