This was my fist visit, took family there to see the museum. There is so much to see at the museum, they also have several interactive simulators and planes there too. Great place to spend most of your day.

A let down actually. You visit the factory and view everything from at least 30 feet up through a viewing gallery. There is very little touch and feel. Weekends there is very little activity. They don't allow any kind of photography inside so all phones...More

This is a great museum and it is more than just about flight - of all kinds. It also has a great history section about the Boeing company. I put this on par with the Smithsonian's Air and Space museum.
