This place, along with the similar Flying Heritage Collection, are keeping us in touch with the history of military aircraft. Lovingly restored to flying condition, the planes are simply amazing. Watch all the old war movies you want on Saturday morning and see the old planes in the air, but the reality hits when you stand on the tarmac and... More

He answered each and every one of our questions. There were only three of us in our cozy group so Chuck let us get up inside of a WWII B-25... More

I visited the museum recently during our holiday from South Australia. The museum is excellent, very well maintained exhibits and I was made to feel so welcome. The guide Alan was so informative and a great advocate for the museum. Well worth the time to visit, thank you

We did have a docent walk with us, she was a bit green but very nice and was able to give us a nice tour. We were able... More

We came here after the disappointing visit to Boeing to look at a lame showcase of stuff. We saved our money and came here to find an amazing collection of vintage aircraft with an extremely versed staff. You can tell the pride these folks take in the museum. I learned a ton about the aircraft and found a new respect... More

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.
