Interesting Air Museum and every plane can and does fly. I had the best experience flying on a 1940's built DC-9. Excellent adventure in such a classic airliner and the VIEW of Puget Sound at sunset from the air in this craft was gorgeous.

It is worth a tour. It is a collection of historic planes that are flown regularly in the Summer. The planes have all been restored and often 2 or 3 are flown on weekends.

An interesting museum where old airplanes are being restored. The exhibit is smaller and will only take an hour or so to see the planes and read the plaques. Good for the older generation but the displays are passive so children may become bored quickly.

Such a nice and very friendly museum that shows off a private collection of functioning vintage aircraft and some suprising vehicles from the past. The docents are more than willing to personally show you around to each of these still flying beauties.

This is a small but beautifully kept aviation museum; the guides and museum staff just burst with dedication and love for their historic aircraft. As one guide said, he knew that we were aviation enthusiasts just because we walked in the door - most visitors...More
