I love airplanes since I was really young. If you are like me, you will really love this museum. However, there is such a wide variety of things to see that if you are not a diehard fan, you will still probably find something to like here. History and aircraft go hand in hand, as you tour through the exhibit... More

This was for me the highlight of my trip to Seattle. This is something that you can’t miss. I wish I had more time to stay and visit. I was there for only 2 hours since my plane was leaving and I left this for the last day. Talking to individuals there go there if you can on a weekday... More

Overall so much too see, takes about 3 to 4 hrs to do. I liked the outdoor exhibit of planes to see, like walking through air force one was really cool. And they have so much NASA exhibits now, apparently a retired astronaut serves on the board and helped to expand the presence of NASA in the museum. I really... More

Great collection of early planes plus WW1 and WW2 planes. Outside are 727, 747, Air Force 1 and Concorde that you can tour. Great exhibits and history of aviation. Also a very nice cafeteria for lunch which you can eat outside by the runway and watch planes land and take off.

This is a great museum for all age groups-Be prepared to spend a few hours. The little restaurant is not cheap, but the food is really good.

There is so much to do and see here make sure to give yourself a full day. Everything from touring the inside of Air-force One to exploring the history of flight in World War I and II. Very educational and family friendly. Located a bit on the outskirts of town.

Enjoyed this informative display. Very interesting even if you're not an aeroplane enthusiast. Go early as we went later in the day and it was very busy.

This is a good day out for anyone who is interested airplanes. Lots to see and do, you are able to get in most the planes that are outside and the WW2 exhibition was excellent. We added on the space shuttle trainer capsule experience which I would highly recommend. We also added on the Boeing Fields tour which was interesting... More
