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.

Great tour, really interesting, Tina was an excellent and enthusiastic guide. Difficult to describe the amazing facility other than BIG, you have to go and see it for yourself.. No photography permitted inside the factory, free lockers provided for valuables.

What a wonderful, wonderful fact filled but super interesting tour. You MUST, MUST, MUST have Christopher as your guide. His commentary is like watching a movie!!! He's the one with big mutton-chops and Scottish accent. Thank you for one of the best tours anywhere!!

The length of the tour is indicative of the amazing work that goes into building the aircraft and spacecrafts. Either a weekend or weekday, the tour is amazing and the same (you will see some work going on a weekday, little bit less over weekends)....More

Tour guide was very good and the tour was really excellent and fascinating. My biggest disappointment was that I could not bring my camera. It's not as if we can really sell their trade secrets to Airbus! (FYI, no, cell phones, camera's, food, drink, purses,...More

This is not just a guided visit to a factory. It is a well-orchestrated production, from an introductory movie to dedicated viewing areas and expert guides. You see Boeing's wide body planes in various stages of assembly but you also learn about the company history...More

Great tour if you are into planes. Super guide Scott groups are 52 people what is quite big as the pace is adjusted to the slowest. There is also a gallery what is a big let down. The pictures did not work and neither did...More

Neat tour of the facilities and a general overview of how Boeing manufacturers planes. You don't see any actual work ongoing due to concern over proprietary information, but it's still interesting nonetheless. There are also cool hands-on exhibits at the end of the tour. A...More

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