we went there with my 9-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter for a half day. It is really worth of going. Both adults and kids learned a lot about airplanes and history there! Fun hands-on activity for kids. Reasonable priced cafe. Will definitely go back there again next time in Seattle.

Was here 20+ years ago when it first opened and the change is outstanding. All the Docents are aviation professionals and extremely knowledgeable on the displays and aircraft history. Small downside museum store not so good.

We visited this museum as a family and found it easier if everyone split up to see what they wanted to see since there is a lot to cover. JFK's Air Force One and the B29 bomber were highlights but there is so much to see!

My 3 year old was absolutely thrilled to go into the big planes in the hangar, but I don't think we would have gone if we didn't have the Prime Discount, or we wouldn't go as often perhaps. I wish there was more a place for young one that was plane themed. Their website shows cools plane themed play areas... More

We spent a whole day at the museum of flight, there's so much to see! If you like planes this definitely a must see. My favourite is the presidential plane tour - airforce one! We had lunch at the museum's cafe which was adequate! It is good for all ages.
