Great Air Museum

One of the Best Air Museums in the country. From early flight to Space can be found. Well worth your time.

So many planes and exhibits to see and so little time. Three hours flew by without knowing it. Be sure to see the planes outside also. This is a great Seattle treasure!

I'm not big on museums, but this place was really cool. Being able to check out the interior of a concord was fascinating. Lots to see here!

There are so many planes to see on display. The Concord, Dreamlike Air Force 1. Not only see but also go on board. I spent about 4 hours there. I would love to go back again. So much to see. A must do! Also the Space Shuttle is there!

My husband is a true aviation buff so during our recent trip to Seattle this was a MUST SEE! The museum and grounds are well-kept and the staff is very informative and friendly. The static displays are awesome! I mean where else can you WALK THROUGH a Concorde??? We highly recommend the Museum of Flight!

Being a private pilot, this is the mecca!!! I could have easily spent an entire day here. Just so much to see. An incredible not to be missed attraction!

Fantastic collection of aircraft, modern and old. The historic WWI WWII sections were very well done and didn't have some the jingoistic elements similar museums have.

The wives went to Chihuly gardens. The guys came here to the museum of flight. What a great place. Lots of different aircraft to see. It's more than just planes. We did it in two hours but could easily spent twice the time. It's a must see when in the area. Better than the smithsonian in DC.
