A very extensive collection covering the history of flying and space exploration. The Great Hall contains an amazing selection of historic aircraft with interesting information boards for each. Other exhibits included Space Shuttle trainer, 787 Dreamliner, World War exhibits and the original Boeing workshop. Unfortunately the Airpark was closed when we were there so we could not visit Air Force... More

It's an awesome place to visit with interesting aircrafts on display. I had a really good time except for the fact tbat most of the aircrafts on display were closed to the public the day I went there.

The short version: An impressive collection of air and space artifacts and replicas, enough interactive exhibits to keep kids entertained, and an impressive gift shop make this a worthwhile stop. The long version: My wife and I moved to Seattle about a year ago, but because she was pregnant/we had our kid, we haven't gotten to do a lot of... More

Having a wonderful collection of historic aircraft inside in the Great Hall, as well as the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner, Concorde, Airforce One, and more outside in the adjacent Airpark, along with a full-sized mockup of the Space Shuttle and half sized model of the Hubble Space Telescope made for a very interesting time. The very modest entry fee, and... More

if you even have a slight interest in aviation or science, this is a must. A really astounding collection of aircraft and space stuff and enough to turn anyone back into a 9 year old. Very interactive. Give yourself lots of hours!

This is a place that requires visiting a number of times, to take it all in. Seeing the control tower with live hookup to the genuine control tower was very special

Guests are treated to outdoor displays of memorable planes as soon as they find a place to park, and man, it just kept getting better. Here's my disclaimer, I enjoy planes, history, and the history of planes. The indoor display of planes were amazing. Some features were sitting inside fighter jet cockpits, walking around the cutout of an old commercial... More

Amazing museum and worth the visit for the whole family or just a couple. Everything form the supersonic airplane to the first Boeing jets. Give yourself all day as it is a big place.

This was my first visit to the museum. We were attending a university alumni function after hours. Very interesting and informative displays. So many different ages and aspects of flight are shown. We even explored the kids area. Fun!

Being a massive aviation fan, I found the displays to be fascinating - and a dream come true. The first 747 and 737 jets ever built? A Concorde and Blackbird? A brand new 787 Dreamliner? Yes please! It's maybe not everyone's cup of tea, as it's not just jet fighters and fire balls. If you're not that into the history... More
