Located approximately 25 miles north of Seattle, The Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour is the only public tour of a commercial jet assembly plant in North America. Explore the interactive exhibits and displays in our 28,000-square-foot Aviation Center Gallery; then take a 90-minute tour of the Boeing plant where you can watch 747s, 777s, or 787 Dreamliners being assembled right before your eyes. There is a minimum height requirement of 4 feet (122 cm) for children participating in the Boeing Tour. To avoid disappointment please make sure to check height before purchasing tickets. This restriction is strictly enforced. ADA accessible tours are offered twice daily. Call in advance to ensure proper accommodations. In the Future of Flight Aviation Center Gallery, the Family Zone is home to a number of different activities, all designed around a theme of aircraft manufacturing and assembly. Activity carts let visitors build a simple aircraft model, or use our Lego (and Lego-compatible) pieces to express new ideas about aircraft design. A kid-sized airport and aircraft allow future pilots of all ages to practice their take-offs and landings. Currently, the Family Zone is also home to a highly engaging, hands-on nanotechnology exhibit, and a Bernoulli Table, an exciting interactive experience that teaches the relationship between the velocity of air and the pressure it exerts. Coloring and reading activities are also available, and drop-ins are welcome. Admission is free for ticket holders and for Institute of Flight members.

Had been here 20 years ago. This visit was much bigger and better. Being able to view assembly of 747, 767, 777 and 787 aircraft was awe inspiring. Our tour guide was perfect. Forgot her name, but her knowledge was terrific and her presentation was...More

Highly recommend. If you are an aviation or just a manufacturing hobbyist, you can't miss this. And if you just like interesting things, you won't be disappointed. The experience is mind boggling: each of these aircraft at $200M being assembled and the history and vastness...More

This tour is a great opportunity to see a working assembly plant. The 1 1/2 hr. tour is very informative and interesting. I would recommend it to Seattle visitors!

The tour guide was amazing and facility impressive. Drivers on the coaches were nice as well. The only negative was they should have a few less people on each tour to allow full access to the viewing railings.

Very informative tour, guide was excellent, I would have liked to see more but understand time limitations. Amazing to see how the planes come together. New technologies explained. Two Dream lifters together was a treat as was the first Quantas Dreamliner hand over. No cameras...More

Wow, really an interesting tour! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide was a retired Boeing engineer and really knew his stuff. Fascinating to see the big jet assembly line. I thought that it was overpriced, but I would go again.

If you're in or around Seattle, and you have the time, get up to Everett for the Boeing factory tour. I went with another parent and our kids, ages 9 and 12, and all of us were captivated seeing those enormous, sleek aircraft being assembled....More

I do not think they allow children at that age. I have seen restrictions on the height of the child.
