...particularly the Big and Small Boys ! Lots of aircraft on show, including fighter jets, lunar modules and planes from earlier eras. There is a Space Shuttle mock up and you can walk along an arm of the International Space Station with some friendly guides. Concorde and a retired Air Force One (used by Kennedy).

Though this airport may be a little off the beaten path for some tourists, this is thee place to explore flight in America. Be sure to walk aboard one of the former presidential Boeing 707 jets and see how rough travel was "way back when". Perhaps the most interesting exhibit is the supersonic British Airway's "Concorde". You will be amazed... More

First of all the time needed for the museum of flight is considerable more then the 2-3 hours mentioned in the beginning. We spend half a day in there and still didn't see everything. A clear must see however are the old airforce one and the concord on the outside areas of the museum. But also the other parts are... More

This was on the vacation agenda; I did not want to go - I wanted to shop. On the spur of the moment I decided to go - I do not regret the decision. The Museum of Flight is quite impressive. Great collection of historical airplanes. Plan to spend a few hours there is that much to experience. Public transportation... More

The Museum was well-organised into manageable sections. Guided Tours were excellent. They seem to be run by people passionate about Aviation and had at some time or the other worked in the Aviation industry

This amazing museum has just about everything that's ever flown in air or space. From biplanes to the Concorde, experimentals to rockets. It well worth at least half a day, more if you can handle it. Particularly loved the SCIFI movie themes that play as you cross from the main museum to the Space exhibit.

I was sceptical about whether the Museum of Flight would be worth the price. Also considered whether to do the Boeing factory tour instead. I am so happy I came here. The museum has a huge number of aircraft. Everything from the early days of flight, to a MiG fighter, a stealth Blackbird, the Concorde, and a space shuttle trainer.... More

The Museum of Flight kept me busy for four hours viewing a great collection of aircraft old and new, plus exhibits from NASA and the Boeing Company. My favorite part was walk-throughs of an actual Air Force One from the Kennedy/Johnson administrations and a British Airways Concorde (supersonic transport) from the 1970s/80s. Even the catering in the Wings Cafe was... More

Historical Airplanes from the past including a real life sized space shuttle when you can enter and see how it works. Its big and you will need at least 3 maybe 4 hrs to walk the entire thing. Go for the Observation Control Tower and for flight controllers wannabes, this is a great place to learn more about ATC and... More
