“A Great Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

This well planned and laid out museum offers a comprehensive history of flight. There are hundreds of exhibits as well as flight simulators and other interactive machines. Definitely worth a few hours tour.

“Well worth the ticket”

WW I and WW II buffs will absolutely fall in those collections. We look forward to returning, as there is so much to take in.

“A great musuem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

This is a great musuem for kids and adults. Lots to see, from airplanes in the great hall to World War I and II airplanes in the Personal Courage section to the story of Boeing's beginnings in the Red Barn. Outside in the airpark are airplanes you can walk through, including a Concorde and old Air Force One 707.

“Neat Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I enjoyed seeing the planes. You can't actually take photos on the tour of the factory. However they have lockers that you can lock you belongings in. Bring a coat if you go in the winter because part of the tour is outdoors as you go from building to building b
