My husband loved that you could touch and smell the planes, put your head in the engine bays and talk to the people who restored them. Got to see a P51 Mustang take off that was in the museum display. It is a working museum.

If you like history and mashinery - it is for you. Just few miles from Boeing factory (but unrelated) you can "touch German, American, Russian, UK, Japanese planes and tanks, see real V2 rocket first rocket propelled messerschmit. Read the stories of it and of that particular plane or tank.

I could see myself in the shine on the Hellcat!! This is an excellent collection of international Warbirds. Russian, British, American, German - the fellows that volunteer actually admitted that the Hurricane was Canadian! According to my wife, it needs a Corsair, but all in all it was a great & informative visit. Now I have to get there for... More

This collection, located near Paine Field in Everett, Washington, is well worth a visit for anyone who loves aviation, particularly WWII Warbirds. While not as large or comprehensive as the Museum of Flight (MoF) in Seattle, this has the distinction of being comprised entirely of flying examples of some notable aircraft, and almost all are flown regularly (there are two,...

I've seen some very large collections of aircraft (notably in Dayton, OH), but this collection is a wonderful way too spend an afternoon. Two hangers, beautifully maintained, lit and presented. There is time to read about the aircraft (they provide information about the general history and then where possible the exact aircraft). All these aircraft are maintained ready to fly... More

My husband, an air force brat, was in heaven at this exceptional museum. I was afraid I was going to be bored out of my skull, looking at yet another set of planes, but found this to be filled with interesting items and compelling stories. The docents also shared tales that thrilled. We hope to return on a fly day... More

This museum is a real gem for aviation enthousiasts, and for everyone who's interested in WW2 planes, and tanks, because they have them too! And the fun part is, they are all in flying condition, and that's what they do every now and than! Be sure to be there than, you can check the data on their website! I was... More

This museum has some of the nicest restorations of WWI and WWII planes I have ever seen. This is definitely some place that I will return again and again. Make sure you plan to be there when they have a Fly Day. We didn't find out about it until we were there a couple of days after their last one.... More

If you love vintage aircraft, you don't want to miss this one. The museum isn't huge, but contains a collection of WWII aircraft in flying condition from the collection of Paul Allen. There are a few that are one of a kind. The planes contain the history of the type and the history of the individual plane. There also also... More
