“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2015 NEW

I loved seeing the planes outside. It was so cool thinking about the Presidents who used the Presidential Plane. See the Dream Liner was incredible. You have to go Boeing Plant. Now that was the most interesting place.

“Good exhibits, confusing presentation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2015 NEW

The museum on Boeing field has lots of very interesting historic and modern exhibits from whole new aircraft to memorabilia from the early days of flight. But to me it did not tell the story of the technology or industry in a logical manner: e.g. the best route through the various halls is not indicated, and some items are insufficiently explained. Some staff, particularly in the aircraft park were scruffy and disinterested.
So well worth a visit, but could be better.

“I Went Five Times, and Loved It”

If you are from out of town, you simply can't not go. If you're local you simply can't not go more often...
