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....

This is truly a special aviation museum to visit. I have been around many such museums as a life long passion, and to have this quality of aircraft, and actual combat veteran aircraft, that are flown for the public is exceptional. Several knowledgeable docents on hand to give you a personal tour if you wish, or to direct you or... More

For any aviation/airplane lover, this is a great collection of WWII planes and historical information. Well managed exhibits and planes are restored to brand new condition. Docents are knowledgeable and provide information matched to the visitors level of interest, from basic overview to full fledge aeroanautical level expert. Great place to visit after taking the Boeing Plant tour nearby on... More

For those who are WW II plane fans, this is an very interesting colection to visit. Although this is not a large colection ( around 20 plane ) the planes have been fully restored and are in flying condition, some are the only ones that exist. Most of the famous warbirds are there, with exeption to the B-17, B-29 and... More

Liked: practically everything. Location is easy to get to with lots of parking. I am not a plane guy but loved the old planes and descriptions. The outside walls are full of murals explaining the era of the planes. ONLY disappointment was the theater in Building No. 2. It was not working when we went there (a Saturday) so were... More
