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.

It is world's largest building in terms of volume... just amazing to watch large aircrafts under construction look like toys placed in the building. Also, don't miss the gallery and deck.

This tour is quite a way from Seattle but it is well worth the journey. It is best to book ahead. The tour represents great value for money and is very informative and well organised.

Although I've been a frequent flier for years, I'm not an aviation buff and hadn't given all that much thought to planes and how they are designed and built. This tour was an eye-opener -- the complexity, speed and sheer scale of turning out planes...More

You get a tour of an actual plant with impressive aircraft in view. You'll see them actually being made as you walk through the plant on an upper deck. There isn't too much room for questions and answers and the pace is pretty fast, but...More
