Amazing collection of historic aircraft

I have lived in the northwest for most of my life and over the years I have seen this collection grow into one of the countries if not the worlds greatest air museums. If you you... read more

I have lived in the northwest for most of my life and over the years I have seen this collection grow into one of the countries if not the worlds greatest air museums. If you you have any interest at all in the history of aviation and space travel you cannot miss this museum. From World War 1 to the... More

My father is a docent at the Air and Space Museum at Dulles, VA so we went to the Museum of Flight while in Seattle last week. Having been to numerous air museums in my lifetime, I can say this is one of the top museums. They have docent guided tours and the cherry on top was being able to... More

it took us nearly 4 hours to check the Museum, great to get to see the old Air Force One and the Concorde on the inside. The WWI and WWII exhibits are very interesting and the beginning of aviation are a treasure. The space area isn't much really. There's a good cafe/restaurant in there for lunch or a quick bite....

Best part of our trip! This is an amazing museum with all sorts of historical and modern planes as well as some spacecraft. The best part was being able to walk through a Concorde, Dreamliner and an Airforce One. They also have the first every Boeing 747. While it was not on display while we were there we could still...

Visited with my boyfriend, who has a keen interest in planes, he loved it and I found it interesting, but it's huge so we were there most of the day! It's a little out of Seattle so we caught a bus. A ride that lasted about 30 mins. I enjoyed the space exploration area and main hall. We also walked... More

Fantastic museum if you like aircraft! Even got a Groupon so was really reasonable. You could spend the entire day in just one section.

Amazing collection -one Space shuttle, 1st Air Force One (JFK/Nixon/Johnson, etc)plane, and an extensive collection of historical planes. My 85 year old dad LOVED it and it made for some good conversations about world war II and him & his 3 other siblings who fought for our country.

Huge collection of aircraft from every era. Loved the walk aboard early Airforce One, The Concord SST, and the new Boeing Dreamliner. Wear comfortable shoes! This museum has to be large to display all the aircraft.

This was so great. We spent 3 hours here and it was worth the 40 minute commute on the bus from downtown. My 7 year old daughter and I had a great time exploring and learning. There was a flight simulator that you paid extra for but it would be worth it for those kids that really enjoyed the experience... More
