We really enjoyed the Museum of Flight, the exhibits were well laid-out and interesting. The explanations were clear, our children (age 11 to 17) all liked this museum a lot. It's possible to go into several planes outside the museum however we made the mistake of leaving this for the end of our visit, when the lines were long and... More

Unfortunately, we arrived on a day when they were having a special event. We were not allowed to park in the regular lot and were given terrible directions to a remote lot. We (and other people) could not find the lot or the shuttle buses that were supposed to transport us to the museum. So we parked somewhere and finally... More

We took 4 children ages 6-11 and had a good day. They have a good range of activities for small children that kept them occupied and learning. Don't miss the sky bridge to the space side, the kids can practice landing the shuttle and launching rockets. The cafe doesn't have great options for kids so you might want to bring... More

A large sprawl of a facility and growing. An impressive number of airplanes displayed. Good favorable display of Boeing history of course.

For those who want to do the Boeing Factory and are into aircraft this is amazing. Interactive and they encourage children to touch. Very informative and well organised.

Well worth a visit. An excellent variety of aircraft and simulators. Seeing the true size of some of the aircraft is a bit of a stunner. For me it was 'they did that in something that small - it looks HUGE on a tv'. Being able to walk through an SST was a real treat.

I really enjoyed our visit. The museum was clean and what I loved must was the planes hanging from the ceiling.

Something for everyone - even younger kids. Huge attention to detail. The exhibits are Smithsonian worthy. If you're at all interested in flight or planes you must go.

Great place for both the airplane/space buff or just an regular folks. Access to all the hardware is the best part for someone that has an interest in Aviation (or has worked in it for years). The most interesting is the 707 Air Force One that LBJ used and brought JFK back from Dallas.
