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 our new 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 Future of Flight Foundation Members.

This was my 3rd time to take the factory tour. This time I took my 13 yr. old son. Our guide was super informative and the experience of having a birds-eye view of the manufacturing floor of the largest building in the world; where you'll see how they make the 747, 777, and the 787 (Dreamliner) is something that will...

Did the factory tour last week, with some friends. The tour itself lasts about 90 minutes, and is managed by Boeing staff/tour guide, on Boeing buses. Unfortunately, no cameras or mobile phones are allowed, so those have to be left at the visitor centre in free lockers provided. The tour stars with a short bus ride from the visitor centre... More

I work for company that's specialized in sea freight and airfreight so for me it was nice to visit this museum. Even though I would have visited it anyway. It's impressive to see how a Boeing is made.

My husband and I went on this factory tour first thing. There was only a small number on the tour which made it intimate and easy. The tour is well run, informative and the guide really friendly. We fly a lot and to see what goes into the making of these planes we fly in was fascinating.Loved being able to... More

Went there with my son who is a plane geek and really enjoyed the tour. What an amazing facility, you could not guess how awe inspiring the space is from outside.
