The place has all airplanes and spacecraft from different eras. The flight simulators are hilarious if you try to do a loop or barrel roll. These are the airplanes I used to draw as a kid. They still stoke the imagination.

This is one of many such museums in the country, and though not at the level of the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum (either on the Washington Mall or the annex in Dulles), it is very good. The proximity to Boeing (it's right on Boeing Field) means they've got lots of support and many great planes and displays. If you... More

I tagged along with some relatives who were going to the Museum of Flight. I was amazed by how interesting it was. I don't know much about airplanes but the museum shows how their development fits into US history. There is so much to see you could spend all day.

The Museum of Flight is an absolute 'must-see' for aircraft and spacecraft buffs, either alone or with their children. It is a huge complex, with aircraft, spacecraft, displays and buildings on both sides of East Marginal Way joined by a skybridge. Many of the displays are interactive, including several flight simulators open to the public. There is a children's wing... More

Plan on checking everything out and spending several hours.... or all day. So much info and interesting history. Lots of things for kids of all ages and they do a great job of keeping their exhibits updated and interesting.

This museum has a great set of exhibits. While it's not quite on par with Duxford in England, it's pretty good. Make sure you cross the road (on the bridge) to see the space exhibit and the original 747 and Air Force One.

No matter how many times we go there it is always worth the admission. It seems like we always find something new we did not discover the last time we visited. All our out of town guests have been asking to visit the Museum of Flight and they get amazed with the sheer amount of exhibits to see and the... More

A ways out of town but very interesting. Consider buying the tour pass as the museum is one of the destinations.

Visit the museum on a rainy Seattle day or with plane enthusiast. Interesting things to see and do with all ages. Grandparents reminisce, teenagers love the simulator, and kids love seeing the BIG stuff. Watch the videos they are interesting.
