The museum is located at Boeing Field. It has the original Boeing airplane factory as part of the display, plus a lot of aircraft to see, touch, experience. I've been here several times and I have enjoyed each visit, even though I am not an aviation fan. You can take photos of yourself as an astronaut or a pilot. You... More

There was all kinds of fighting about going to the Museum of Flight prior to our trip to Seattle. Our 14 yo daughter and 11 yo daughter did not want to go as they thought it would be boring. We went anyway. We spent about 2 1/2 hours at the museum and were able to walk through all the floors... More

The size and scope are almost overwhelming. A little put off by all the extras attractions being offered at a price but there is plenty to see for the price of admission.

Even if you're not into airplanes, everyone in your group will find something interesting here. We went early in the day on Sunday (both times) and there were fewer people there, no lines to wait in. The food in the cafe there isn't worth the money, but everything else there is great fun. Lots to see for adults and kids.... More

A great exhibit of flight from the early days to the present. Wonderful presentations and explainations. Outside exhibits as well. Near the Boeing airfield, plenty of parking. You will enjoy,

You could easily spend a whole day here or even a couple of days if you are interested in Aviation. Very well presented and a multitude of aircraft on display.

This was a great museum with so many interesting things. Two simulators rides and lots of planes to see. Lots of interesting history and artifacts. A definite must do! Plan for 3+ hours

Great to see the planes and space ships. Knowledgeable staff. A fair bit of info about Boeing early history. Idiosyncratic in their treatment of Russian accomplishments and accidents (perhaps understandable.)

I don't like museums, but I do love aviation. I enjoyed this museum because you could go inside an Air Force One jet (super old though) and a Concorde jet. I also enjoyed the ATC Tower. Most of the aircraft were taped off and you could only look and not touch, which bores me. The museum is far from the... More

Our time was limited, but we both really liked the Red Barn gallery, looking at the old photos, artifacts and learning some of the history of Boeing and aviation. There is a lot to see in the Great Gallery, and we were glad that we rented the handheld audio guides ($3 with AAA.) The Space Shuttle simulator was a disappointment,... More
