If you're into aviation history, this place is extremely interesting. We had our own personal guide, who walked us around every aircraft. We could touch and feel aircraft 50, 60, 70 years old that have been lovingly restored and maintained. We even went out on the tarmac and were able to climb up into the actual cockpit of a WWII...

Nothing else like this collection of historic yet airworthy planes on display as well as in the air. Certain days are free to watch.

The tour guides are mostly old pilots retired so the stories you get to hear are real. To me they are truly heroes!

Well, it's kind of hard to find so you might want to use your GPS to find the place. This place is so clean you could eat off of the floor (not suggesting you do so) but, you get the point. Paul Allen, has done a great job of collecting these war birds and machines from all parts of the... More

You can't take photos on the Boeing Tour, but you can in the Flying Heritage Collection. Last-of-its-kind planes that are still flyable. Docents are retired military with terrific stories. Everything is displayed so beautifully. So glad we visited this.

A truly wonderful collection of mostly WWII aircraft and some artillary/tanks. The photo strips were excellent. The videos were very informative, especially the "NIGHTWITCHES". I was especially impressed by the aircraft's info card. But, the part of the card I found most interesting was the section on the history of the aircraft on display. I have never seen this presented... More

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.
