“Great Flight Musuem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

For any aviation/airplane lover, this is a great collection of WWII planes and historical information. Well managed exhibits and planes are restored to brand new condition. Docents are knowledgeable and provide information matched to the visitors level of interest, from basic overview to full fledge aeroanautical level expert.
Great place to visit after taking the Boeing Plant tour nearby on Paine Field.
Fun for all ages and family types. Reasonably priced entrance fee.

“Worth while seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

For those who are WW II plane fans, this is an very interesting colection to visit. Although this is not a large colection ( around 20 plane ) the planes have been fully restored and are in flying condition, some are the only ones that exist. Most of the famous warbirds are there, with exeption to the B-17, B-29 and the P-38 lightning, FU4 corsair among others. Never the less, a very impressive collection and worth the visit. I will bring friends to see it.

“Outstanding Collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Liked: practically everything. Location is easy to get to with lots of parking. I am not a plane guy but loved the old planes and descriptions. The outside walls are full of murals explaining the era of the planes. ONLY disappointment was the theater in Building No. 2. It was not working when we went there (a Saturday) so were not able to see the actual film footage of battles etc. Really would have added to the experience since my wife and I are not of that era (born in '49 & '50). Lady said they were having trouble with it for a while. Otherwise great experience and worth the admission. Will try to go back when films are running.

“nice collection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

nice collection of airplanes, well maintained. Is more for those who know the history of the planes as there wasn't much signage or information on some of the airplanes.

“A Must See for Plane Lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

An up close look at historic (mostly WWll) planes that are restored to flying condition. There is even a MIG fighter! There are educational displays and a theater. It only costs $12.00 for a 1st class collection that will take you a minimum of 2 hrs. to look over. These planes are owned by Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft.
