This is a great option for anyone but especially for cruise passengers looking for an activity before boarding their ship. It's close to the cruise pier and family friendly. If you live locally and have never been, make a plan to go.

Really good for all. Kid friendly. I would recommend it highly. Even the lunches were reasonable priced and tasty. Go you'll love it. Concord, air Force 1. Exciting.

This museum was down-to-earth and inviting. We spent several good hours here. It's family-friendly, and aimed at those without much knowledge of anything flight-related. When we were there in the summer, the coast guard had helicopters out in the parking lot and were doing talks.

The spruce goose is amazing , and there are lots of other aviation displays. The cafe there served a good lunch also. This is a very busy destination, so allow enough time to explore it all

The Museum of flight is massive, which makes sense, there are many very big aircraft to see there. It is possible to walk through the history of flight and admire the crafts and even sit in a few! There are wonderful docents around who have so much knowledge and enjoy a good conversation. It is also very possible to read... More

The Museum of Flight is all around wonderful. If your kids want to breeze through, look at all the planes, hop in the cockpit of a couple super fast jets and go, it will be a wonderful day. If you all want to read and listen and learn about all of the amazing planes, jets, space capsules and more -... More

We both loved the museum of flight as we're airplane nuts. We spent 4 hours touring and could have spent more time had we to been up against closing time. Really interesting and loaded with cool flight history. Don't miss it!

I found this museum to be a great place to visit. It has an array of planes and a lot of history of flight. Enjoyable for visitors, homegrowns, families , children. Plan on spending a bit of time in this place and go away amazed at the planes and history that abounds here.

This place has a ton of planes to see both inside and outside.... good family experience- but kids under 5 may not like it. They also have a radar exhibit - it shows you all the planes in the air in real time.... it is my favorite.
