Stopped there before my flight that afternoon. Did not have enough time to see it all. It was a great place to go. When we arrived we found out the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels we coming in to prepare for Seafair.

Well worth it and very educational. It is easily as good as the Smithsonian in quality and variety. If you live in the area, go the first Thursday of the month and it is free!

Very easy to get to and reasonably priced. The volunteer staff were friendly and knowledgeable but the exhibits and the information boards speak for themselves. The WW2 exhibit was probably the best one I have seen and the Space exploration not far behind. Not a real aviation buff but managed to spend a good 4hrs on a rainy Seattle day and could have stayed longer

We toured the museum of flight during our visit to Seattle and were thoroughly impressed. The buildings are large, open and bright. The staff is friendly and very helpful. There are multiple buildings with aircraft from different eras. We particularly enjoyed the WW1 and WW2 areas which provides vivid descriptions of the experiences of those wars. The interactive displays were enjoyable. The very large structure with the modern jets is incredible. There are multiple jets to walk through and look at what kinds of testing Boeing used to certify a new plane.
We were there for 3 and one half hours and enjoyed every minute. Will need another visit to see more details.

Some of the classic aircraft are on exhibit as well as informative exhibits.

Ability to enter the Concorde and Air Force One were high points.

Loved the high altitude spy plane as well.

Helpful staff and reasonable prices.

Need two days to see it all well, just like all good museums. Price is great for families and Ofer to come back second day with discount is a great idea.

I am a retired Air Traffic Controller with 41 years in the business, both civil and military. This was like being a kid in a candy store!

Quite possibly the best museum of aviation I have ever been to. All of the displays were done so well. We loved every minute exploring the WW2 and space exhibits especially. Walking in Air Force One (Kennedy-Johnson-Nixon era) was a blast from the past. Allow yourself about 2 hours or more to fully experience this museum.

I was pleasantly surprised. The place had lots to see and is very big. We were there for 5hrs and still were not able to read all of the information about each item. The planes were cool to see both inside and out. The displays about WWII AND WWI were great. The Space exhibits were also impressive.

The gold standard of Aviation museums is Smithsonian Air & Space Museums in Washington, DC. The Museum of Flight comes in 2nd. It was informative and had many items of interest. Their outside original aircrafts, 747, 787 Dreamliner, Air Force One was the best. These weren't models but the original aircrafts. We spent 4+ hours there.
