Spent 3 hours until they closed. Would have stayed longer. So much to see. Such knowledgeable guides and volunteers. You can view aircraft, enter aircraft, watch films, read history. It really is a well done and beautiful museum.

Our family took bus route 124 and it took us right to the museum for only $6.50 ($2.50 per adult, $1.50 per child 5 and over...you must have exact change). The museum was amazing and had an extensive collection of planes from WWII and beyond. It also had a great display about the history of Boeing in the Seattle area.... More

Love the older planes and the recreation of the "Red Barn" where it all started. Too bad Boeing moved their corporate offices to Chicago. Good restorations of modern planes and fun to go inside of some with Presidential connections. Well worth the price of admission.

There is an great selection of aircraft here. I am very surprised it is not higher on the list. If you are in town you must see it.

The Museum of Flight is fascinating for any age. It is constantly changing with the addition of aircraft and the guides really know their stuff and a so friendly and patient with both young and old.

We took the extra time and traveled up to the Boeing factory which is about 30 minutes north. The tour was well worth the drive and the museum interesting.

This is a Must see for all ages. Our boys ages 4 and 6, plus ourselves were enthralled. We spent 3.5 hours here on a planned stop and could have stayed all day. Something for everyone! Price is more than fair with under 5 being Free! Interactive, fascinating and educating all at the same time. We were treated to a... More

Very Cool! Not only do you see Wright plane, SR-71, but walk into the Concorde, Air Force One, and a B-17 bomber. With the SR-71 you get to sit in the cockpit! Only available here! No other place in the US. Great book store. Very knowledgable docents. It is at the Boeing Field in Seattle. Great for families, kids will... More

A must visit even if you are not into planes ! Stopped here on our way to the Airport thinking we had a good 4 hours and could eat and make our flight. Never ate and raced to make our flight barely on time. Easily could have spent the whole day here. Walking thru Air Force One was an experience... More

This was a no brainier for my son and I. We loved this museum. Lots of aircraft to take pictures of and a lot of displays to learn about. By far the most fun part was the 360 degree flight simulator. My son and I flew a combat mission. The simulator allowed us to do complete barrel rolls. Talk about... More
