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

Came here with two children, ages 6 and 3. They quickly bored of looking at the aircraft. Other museums offer thing such as cockpits for children to climb in or interactive exhibits - it would be nice if this museum had something similiar. The price is quite high for only having two hangers of craft to see. Otherwise the museum... More

Like others, we came to Flying Heritage after our Boeing Factory Tour in Everett. I was so impressed with the care taken with these beautiful vintage aircraft! We were there the day before a big air show, and mechanics were prepping a couple of planes to fly the next day. To be that close to a piece of history that... More

After visiting the Boeing factory, my wife and I came across the airport to visit the other museum on my list in Everett. I was disappointed with the Boeing tour but wasn't at Paul Allens flight museum. It will appeal to those who love old war birds. I have been lucky to witness many great planes at many museums all...

This is a very impressive collection of aircraft and military machines that would certainly fascinate all those interested in World War II. But I found it rather overpriced - $14 for an adult - and very difficult to locate. I had initially assumed that, if I drove to Paine Field, I would quickly find signs guiding me to the place....
