Great Aviation Museum

A very impressive collection of aircraft. Paul Allen, of Microsoft fame, has put together a very nice venue and the aircraft are very well preserved and presented.

This is a great museum with all of the old, classic air-crafts that are really interesting to see if you like those things. This is owned by Paul Allen. He definitely likes old, vintage air planes.

What makes this museum so special is that they have many unique examples of aircraft that cannot be found anywhere else. Some items are the sole surviving model of that particular aircraft, or are one of only three or four left in the world, and as such are priceless specimens. It is a fairly small collection, however the level of... More

Great people hosting the visit of our touring aircraft B-17 'Sentimental Journey'. We fly to over 20 sites in the US and Canada during the summer to exhibit this great aircraft to the public -- no easy feat! The staff and facility here know what they're doing and we're looking forward to welcoming visitors and doing some living history flights.

This is a great place to se some WWII war birds in excellent condition. Great docents and placards at each aircraft to give you its history. One of the best museums of this type I've been to. Makes a great add on to the Boeing factory tour since they're at the same airport.

A collection of mostly WW II-era planes, with a few helos and other post-WW II craft and items about jet propulsion. There are German, US and Japanese planes. I think there were UK and Russian planes too. Each plane has a placard that details the use of the plane in the War, as well as info about the specific plane... More

An amazing place! Paul Allen has assembled a wonderful collection of WWII planes from around the globe. There is also a great synopsis of the key war events and how the air technology, the strategies, the manufacturing capabilities, and the leadership and bravery of the people in the different war theaters impacted the outcomes of an area. But also just... More

We combined our visit to the FHC with the Boeing tour at Paine field which was also a great experience. We visited the collection after seeing a selection of the aircraft fly at the seafair air show the previous weekend. The collection is fantastic with all the aircraft in immaculate condition which was nice to see. The guides were very... More

This place was kind of cool, but they were getting ready for an airshow the next day. Six or seven planes were away from their normal display location and some of the interactive kiosks were unplugged. The theater was also closed for the day, otherwise this place would get four stars.
