“Lots to See”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

We went and didn't feel we saw everything we wanted to in one day. There is a lot of aviation History here. I'm not that in to airplanes but there was something about this place that made me want to become a part of it. The day I was there there was a concert and an astronaut was speaking. So there is more to do there than just look at the airplanes and other displays. I believe the practice Shuttle is there now too.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

This Museum is a must see. The array of airplanes is truly incredible. We were there for five hours and still did not see everything, good excuse to go back. Air Force One and the Concord, which you get to go into, were very cool.

“Nice Rainy Day to Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Yes, it was raining on the day we went to the Museum of Flight, but that's not the reason we went. It rains alot in Seattle. If you love airplanes this is the place to go. We enjoyed looking at all the different planes and the history of them.
