Took the tour on Tuesday, May 19, 2015, at 10:30am. Boeing tour guide spoke with a British or Australian accent. He bumbled and stumbled his way through the presentation often times repeating himself. The purported five-year veteran could not/did not offer insight. The sound of riveting came in loud and clear, but the guide... You will have to adhere to... More

From a mock-up of an airport control tower to a full size space shuttle trainer, the Museum of Flight has something for everybody and age group. Lots of planes both inside and outside and lots of hands on stuff to do with a wealth of aviation history. See the original red barn where Boeing started and the modern state-of-the-art museum...

This Museum is a treasure for anyone interested in Aviation or American history. a plethora of exhibits from pre World War 1 aircraft to current military models on exhibit. Plan on spending a lot of time because as any such respectable musuem you'll want to indulge your senses.

Seattle, home to Boeing, should know something about how to do a Museum of Flight. This did not disappoint. Many different area tracing the history of flight from bi-planes to Air Force One. Allow at least two hours...more if you have plane geeks in the group!

We spent several hours in the main building and outside surround, but ran out of time to tour the additional three plus buildings. Better to plan a full day for this attraction. Review the map handout and plan (better than we did). The exhibits are really well done.

We took a trip to Seattle to go to the museum of flight and to see the space shuttle simulator. It was so neat to go on that tour! We were a bit disappointed though that we thought WE would be DOING some sort of simulator. That being said, it was still great! We were thinking a couple hours would... More

If you are a lover of aviation and history this is the place. A lovely spacious well organized museum that traces the history of aviation and the Boeing company. I was going at a fast pace and it still took over 4 hrs. Try and get there as the museum opens to avoid the crowd. Many museum volunteers available to... More

What beautiful work! The different glass pieces were amazing. A great value especially when you purchase it with the Seattle Needle.

I am a tour guide in Seattle, and this is a must-see if you like technology, history or well planned and well executed museums. It's a stroll through the history of aviation that I could spend the whole day exploring. I've been there a dozen times and will go there a dozen more.

The Museum of Flight is a great place to spend a half day. The Courage Wing is the place to spend your time to start with. It is truly special. The Museum just gets better and better. It is also a great place for special events for any airplane buff.
