Amazing place

A must visit in the Seattle area. Book in advance during the summer months as it is busy. Hard to believe the size of the airplanes until you see a person working on them!

The Future of Flight Center is well worth a look and the 90 minute tour is a must. The tour directors are very well versed and knowledgeable, and you get to see first hand some of the workers assembling and putting finishing touches on Boeing's offerings. I was excited to see the new 787 with its beautiful tipped wings, and... More

Lots of parking space, easy to get to from the airport. The exhibit of the Concorde and other warbirds was impressive. Very educational, with available docents in almost all of the exhibits.

We were in Seattle and used the chance to teach the kids something. The 14 year old, 11 year old and parents all loved this, especially the aviation geek dad of the family. Definitely worth a visit to learn something and see some really cool things. The docents were either good or amazing... very impressed with their passion and knowledge!

This was just a wonderful experience. We spent 4 hours but could have stayed much longer. Everything was displayed with professionalism and clarity. The museum covers all aspects air, flight, and space. You will find lots and lots of planes; old and new. Air Force One was a real treat. Excellent for young and old. The displays provide technical information,... More

We spent most of the day here... it's huge and so interesting! One of our favorite things was being able to get onto an Air Force One plane used by Eisenhoser, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, as well as used for flying Kissinger and Khruschchev. Another of our favorites was getting inside a space shuttle trainer. We've gained a whole new appreciation... More

I'm a member. If your interested in airplanes, there's a lot to see both at the Museum and across the street. Its great to see some of the airplanes that were on the outside now under cover. Also about five of the planes you can walk right onto the plane.

Unbelievable number of planes (reproductions but still fabulous) plus everything and anything else you could imagine about airplane and space travel. Incredibly knowledgeable volunteers and docents (many retire air-force and a few WWII veterans) who really make the material come alive. To really see it plan on a visit of 3-4 hours. Whether you are interested in the technology or... More
