Really a well laid out museum and wonderfully presented. I was disappointed that the B-17 was not being displayed but the rest of the planes made up for that. We spent about 4 hours here - including a nice inexpensive lunch in their cafe- but could have spent more time if we wanted too. When they get the new exhibition... More

I visisted this museum on the first thursday of the month in which there are free tickets. It was such an amazing experience!! The museum is huuuuge and is divided in different areas: ww1, ww2, boeing history, planes exposition and nasa exposition. It requires around 3-4 hours to do a complete tour!

I cherish the time spent looking at beautifully restored and cared for planes, fighter jets , and space craft.. Seeing my nephew so interested and engaged will stay with me forever, regardless of my own interest in the subject at hand..Wonderful, clean, and well laid out space!!!

How have I been to Seattle so many times and not been here?!? It's an incredible site and expanding even more. Outside are several history makers - Concorde, Air Force One (and Two), a Gruman A-6 Intruder and more. Inside is a step back into aviation history in exhibits, static displays, history clips on on-demand video and in pictures &... More

History, drama, science and a great rainy day visit from toddler up to senior. Easy to access, a little cafe on premise and a really wonderful gift shop for all ages of aviation fans.

Went there with my family of five with a teenager, 9, and 7 year old boys. We all loved this place. Lots to see and hands on activities. This is a place where you need to talk to the volunteers standing all over the place. They are very knowledgable and bring the exhibits to life. Expect to spend the day... More

A wonderful, educational visit to the museum of flight for grandpa and oldest grandson. Will do it again with other grandchildren as they reach the age to appreciate and value the educational displays.

Kids love going and looking at the planes.. Some of the larger displays are closed while they expand and open a larger area summer '16.. A bug pricy, but we opted for an annual pass which gets you into other museums too.
