Must see if your into military history. Paul Allen of Microsoft maintains the planes and tanks in working order and best condition of any museum I've seen. Some good videos as well, plus a fun gift shop.

Meticulous warbirds, nostalgia, noise, incredible piloting. Check the schedules on the web. There are several aviation venues at Paine. Final planning and financing are currently underway for a aircraft restoration center. The Snohomish County region is home to thousands of enthusiasts and skilled fabricators. Machining, design and airframe restoration skills resulted in the restoration and routine flights of at least... More

A small collection of immaculately restored WWII vintage aircraft in flyable condition, and are frequently flown. Small, but well worth a visit by anyone interested in vintage aircraft.

What a surprise to see so many bi-planes in action, and also historic cars. A special event was the "Triumph over Adversity" movie, explaining the history of the Tuskegee Airmen - the story needs to be told to young people how the first unit of African-American pilots was created, and how they were finally recognized. Enjoyed talking to several pilots... More

A great selection of vintage aircraft are on show, all in pristine condition. We had a personal guided tour with one of the volunteers and spent about two hours viewing the museum.

If you happen to be in the area and your husband or significant other is an avid airplane enthusiast, but you are not, do not fret because this is the perfect place to go to spend an hour or two even though like me you may not be into these magnificent machines. We went with another couple and us ladies... More

I visited here as part of my first AGF15 and was shown around by Al, and a new volunteer trainee whom I forgot his name, that works for Boeing. Both were friendly gentlemen who really do know their history and planes. The exhibited planes are placed close together and you can walk amongst them up close, and some have step... More

Historic Flight Foundation is really unique amongst airplane museums. Where else can you walk right up to so many classic airplanes kept in tip-top shape with no ropes? The founder of the museum is frequently on-site and is a friendly guy answering questions about his many flights in the F7F Tigercat, MIG-29 (which is now on the other side of... More
