Whether you are a native or a visitor, you should find time to visit this great museum. The history is incredible and the human stories are immense. The challenges and the triumphs are all laid out from Kittyhawk to the space shuttle. Tours on the planes are awesome and you could spend hours here to get a real appreciation of... More

I have been to the museum many times and am always surprised at new exhibits or ones I haven't had time to see on the previous visit. Their exhibits of the history of Boeing and Aviation are very well done and interesting. A great place for kids, too!

Awesome museum. You need to spend at least half a day here. Don't rush! The world War exhibits, air force one and the concorde will make your day, as well as the shuttle one.

Of all the many Seattle tourist oriented places to visit this is a not-to-be-missed one! It's a living history experience you can't possibly see in just 1 day. From the first days of flight right up to today you will be in awe. TIP...DO sign up for a 'docent' to guide you through. Pick the area of your interest for... More

This is a wonderful museum to get lost in all day! I especially appreciated the opportunity to tour the Concorde, (which I will always regret never getting to be a passenger when it was flying,) walk through a mock space shuttle, and tour an Air Force One plane, where quite a few historical decisions were made in the sky. If... More

My husband and I both enjoyed a nearly full day at the museum. We did the extra tour of the Space Shuttle trainer. It wasn't a terribly long tour but well worth it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and knew lots of interesting trivia. For anyone with even a minimal interest in aviation and space the museum is well worth... More

We totally enjoyed the museum docents, many retired from Boeing, they know their stuff, and have great history and stories to share. The museum is interactive and comprehensive, a must see in Seattle!

I'm a huge aviation history buff who lives locally, and despite being on the far side of Seattle, I try and make it to the Museum of Flight at least once a year. There are no less than three wings (pardon the pun!) to explore, plus an outdoor airpark where you can get up close and personal with planes that... More

One of the reasons I went to Seattle was to go to this museum but I have to say I was slightly disappointed our tour guide was very good but the whole tour was missing the wow factor!!!!
