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.

Often by plane, but never seen how the plane was made. So when the first opportunity to witness the workshop manufacturing large aircraft, that feeling really makes people feel shocked! The tour route was very convenient. I made a reservation on the Internet in advance,...More

Informative tour, unique experience, much more interesting than any aviation museums we've been to. Some information in the tour can be found online, but you get to see in person how planes are made at different stages. You don't have to be interested in aviation...More

If you go directly to the factory this is a good value tour and mildly informative. However, do not expect a bee hive of activity. The assembly line is huge but looks deceive as the aircraft are so big it does not appear to be....More

I went on Sunday afternoon and my tour group was very large (~20 people) for one tour guide. Since it wasn't a normal work day, there was little to no action on the floor. For these reasons, I could not justify the cost of the...More

It was an amazing opportunity to find out a bit about the planes we fly in. Sure, you can't take photos as someone has mentioned, but I don't know of any manufacturing facilities like this that you can. We certainly learnt loads & the Future...More

Our son is an aerospace engineer so this was the highlight of the trip for him. Very informative and interesting, even if aviation is not your thing!

Our daughter worked with carbon fiber and 3-D printers while she was in college 10 years ago. It was awesome to see those items utilized in industry.

It could be so cool. But most of the tour is spent in an underground tunnel or freight elevators. Yes the buildings are large - something you hear over and over again. I expected this - as they are housing airplanes, after all! SO WHAT!...More

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