I enjoyed seeing a history of flight, from the earliest methods of building airplanes in the original Boeing factory to modern day. If you take the tunnel across the highway, you can board the Space Shuttle trainer. You can also board a Concorde jet and Air Force One used by Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. There are warplanes used in... More

Spent about half a day there. Could have easily spent an entire day. The public bus (124?) is very convenient.

It was Saturday and there was the Blue Angels air show so it was amazing. I am fan of knowing types of planes and its history since I had flying phobia (I don't know what is called). Kids will love this museum as well as adults. There is a bit pricy cafe that offer snacks and drinks as well.

I must start by admitting that I am a huge airplane/airliner fan. As a child, I built up a huge model airplane collect (all to scale), and build airports all around my house. So the Museum of Flight was the only thing I really needed to see during my long weekend in Seattle. Visiting the museum was like having all... More

If you have any interest in the history of aviation or space flight, this is an experience you don't want to miss. Many dozens of planes on display and numerous other exhibits.
