“A must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Best flight museum in the world bar none. As a member since the begining on operning day and have traveled to over 100 flight museums, this venue outshines them all, including Air and Space in Washington DC.
Great historical exhibits. Docents and staff are always eager to share their knowledge and insights.

“Excellent Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This museum is a great airplane museum. Also, space, WWI, and WWII. The Concord and Airforce one are there. You can go on them for a tour. This museum is really big. Lots of airplane history here. If you like airplanes and the history of them, it is a good place to go see.

“Very cool museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is a super cool museum and well worth the trip! Where else can you say you boarded the Concorde and Air Force One? I wish the Tran-Canada Airways plane and the first 747 were open to see but the rest of the museum is totally awesome!!

“Well worth the trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

My husband loves planes so he was in heaven at the Museum of Flight. After spending a couple of hours here, it was hard to get him to leave! It was neat to be able to board the Concord and the Air Force One!

“Way cool museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

It is easy to spend a lot of time in this museum - certainly one of the best collection of historic airplanes this side of the Smithsonian.
