Overview
More
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.

Interesting and well conducted tour. Super cool to see the 747 being manufactured. I didn't give it 5 stars because the title of the tour is 'Future of Flight', so we were expecting a little more of a look into the technology/design of supersonic/space flight.

The Future of Flight Aviation Center is the starting point for the Boeing Factory Tour and is located just west of the massive Boeing assembly building. This factory opened in 1967 and produces the 747, 767, 777 and the 787 airplanes. The Center is located...More

Seeing how a 747, or 777 is built is interesting, but the name of this tour is Future of Flight... There is no future discussion beyond the next model of the 777 or 787. There was nothing about Boeing's future in space flight, supersonic flight,...More

Do it!! You will get to sit for maybe 2-3 mins in between because you have to get on to the bus and go to another building. It’s not boring for kids at all!!

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