I loved reading the post cards to home from soldiers ( very sad) but so interesting ..Going in all the different planes was great fun. This is a wonderful exhibit. There... 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.

Being from the East coast, we have been to the Smithsonian (and the annex), as well as the Air Force museum in Ohio. We still really enjoyed this museum. The displays are well done, and provide the history surrounding the aircraft. Additionally, they have living history guides (at least one was a retired Boeing employee) who are on hand to... More

The shear breadth of the aircraft on display is amazing, from WWI right up to the present day. The ability to walk around and really see these planes from close up...and in many cases walk right into them is pretty terrific. Though it would be great for younger children, my older ones and my wife and I loved the time... More

If you are airplane lover, this is heaven for you. I have already visited two times. Both of the times amazed. It may take around 6 hours to enjoy all the items.

So much to see, the display of airplanes, early history of aviation to current Space flights. Can't see it all in one day.

You can see the real things like the SR 71 Black bird and many more aircrafts. Our sons science project was the main reason we were there and I also learned a lot. Yes, we will visit again

Our whole family really enjoyed this museum. They have a couple of real "aces" in one of the Air Force 1 planes and a Concorde. But the array of offerings is extensive and wonderfully varied. Perhaps the best thing is that the museum offers cross-generational appeal. As a fan of modern history, I was in awe of being able to... More

This is a fantastic museum and there is something here for everyone: General Aviation, Military, Airliners, Space flight etc. I was particularly pleased to be able to tour the first Boeing 727 Jet that I have actually flown earlier in my career as a pilot for United Airlines. It now has a permanent home and has been restored to its... More
