Description:

Located approximately 25 miles north of Seattle, The Future of Flight...

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.

Don't just pay for seeing the museum. The Boeing 747 plant is where the education really is. Loved the 90 minute tour.

My wife and I took our two granddaughters to visit, and we were dazzled - by the size of the place, by the tour guide, by the attention to detail that they provide. The 90 minute tour went by very quickly, and topping that off with a person helping make paper airplanes was immense. I was impressed from start to... More

Interesting look at one of the main manufacturing plants for Boeing aircraft, including the new 787's. Very knowledgable tour guides. The tour was around 1.5hrs in length and included a shuttle coach to/from the different buildings. Once at each building there is an amount of walking through the underground tunnels to get to the large elevators which take you up... More

A fascinating tour of Boeing's giant aircraft production facility in Everett, WA, in the world's largest building by volume, where the iconic 747s, as well as 777s and 787s are assembled. For aviation geeks, this is great, but it should hold interest for the general visitor as well. The explanations could be a little more in depth. Best to book... More

On the last day of our visit to Seattle, we decided to go on the Boeing tour. We made our reservations online and were lucky to get tickets for the last tour of the day. I would advise booking earlier than the day of your tour, if possible. The tour was a combination of flight museum, short aviation film and... More

I took my new husband on a tour of Boeing's main building in Everett. I had done this many years before, before they charged. He likes airplanes and I wanted to show him where I used to work, so off we went. Through Seattle, the traffic is horrible, but we picked an 11am start so we wouldn't have to drive... More

We went to the Boeing tour and the Future of Flight museum yesterday and we were extremely happy with it.

My wife was not all that keen to go to here. But combined with the factory tour she said she really enjoyed the day. A terrific activity on a rainy day. We went with Viatour and our coach driver was great. Highly recommended.
