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.

I like to know the history of wherever I'm going to see, and while our guide was enthusiastic, well-spoken and very friendly, the general history of Boeing was almost entirely missing from his presentation. Instead the focus was on numbers - how many football fields or Disneyworlds would fit inside the factory, etc. That said, it nevertheless was extremely interesting... More

Boeing's manufacturing plant is the largest indoor structure in the world and covers more area than Disneyland. The tour is incredibly informative and because it's non-technical, anyone can enjoy it. It's truly a mind-expanding experience. People transit the complex in underground tunnels and the planes and plane parts are lifted via a complex girding structure high in the roof. If... More

While the guide was knowledgeable and the cost for the tour reasonable, there was one major drawback. It is one guide per busload of people and it's a big bus too. It is very difficult to get personal questions answered because the guide is dealing with a herd of people. And being there's a time factor you just get bused... More

We visited here with two teens and two kids. The tour was 1.5 hours long and it flew by. The amount to see is almost overwhelming but amazing. Our guide was great (but can't remember his name). Highly recommended to make reservations online. The only challenge I had was with parking my 32' motorhome; I parked far away when we... More

I loved the Boeing tour!!! This was one of my favourite attractions in Seattle, and I loved seeing how planes were made. SO SO SO GOOD! Unfortunately, we could not get an ASL interpreter due to a last minute decision, but if you are Deaf and require an ASL interpreter for the tour, I suggest you book at least 2... More

The tour was affordable, very well organised and focused on guest's needs, comfort and safety. Bettina, our guide was brilliant and obviously proud of the Boeing company. We learnt a lot. Gaining a tiny bit of insight into the inspiring world of aviation was a privilege.

This tour is very much geared towards reeling off lots of trivia about how long it takes to make various bits of Boeing aircraft. If you're already interested, then I can see it would be fascinating. The guys seemed a little bored, and it was ridiculous they showed a movie that was so old as the orientation

We went here with 2 teens and a 6 year old, there was something for all of them to find interesting. unfortunately we were unable to get in on the tour of the facility, but what we did see was well worth the admission. There was a corner with some science type education toys that the kids loved. The biggest... More

I was travelling to Seattle with a guy friend who absolutely wanted to go to that museum. I am not a big fan of auto, train or plan museums but actually really enjoyed this tour. First, Boeing has an excellent system in place to run this tour. You make the reservation, show up and there is not wait. The facility... More

The Future of Flight Aviation Center and Boeing tour are totally unique!! You'll have the ability to tour the 747, 777, and 787 hangars! The views from within the factory are AMAZING and you get the opportunity to see what it really takes to produce an airplane. One Side Note: Definitly use the free lockers at the entrance to the...
