Amazing collection - Nixon's Air Force one, the first 747, a 787, a Concorde, a SR71 (you can sit in the pilots seat), WWI and WWII aircraft, and on and on. It's especially nice to visit if it's raining outside (typical Seattle)

The facility is beautiful, and expanding every year. We are members of this museum and go with all Seattle visitors, our grandchildren and our favorite place to visit. We had our daughter's wedding reception here and we were so proud for all guests to be able to visit this location. This is truly the aviation industry's premiere museum.

If you and your kids love to explore and learn about planes then this is for you. This museum is huge and expect several hours to spend here. You'll learn about the history of planes and its evolution. You can sit on the cockpit of a fighter plane or ready to get dizzy on the flight simulator. You can also... More

First trip, an elementary school aged kid and myself found much more than we expected. We spent so much more time than we thought given the multitude of exhibits and information presented, including special access to certain aircraft available at that time. If you are remotely interested in airplanes from any era, this is a must visit.

A lot of museums on the west coast kind of pale in comparison to the east coast. This is not one of them. Really the only flight museum I've seen that's better than this is the National Air and Space Museum in DC. The WWII plane section is INSANE with great displays and planes, and lots of context about what... More

There is now so much to see that you could easily spend a half day or more, esp. if you are going to see a movie and/or see inside the Space Shuttle trainer (don't miss that if available). The WW I and WWII exhibits would each be worthy of a visit by themselves. Don't miss the Concorde and a former... More

There are many rare and unique aircraft and spacecraft housed in a gallery smaller yet similar to the National Air & Space Museum at the Smithsonian in DC. There's a comprehensive WWII Warbirds collection, a Concorde and the actual Space Shuttle training simulator.

Could easily spend 1/2 day at this museum. Starts with the Wright Brothers and goes all the way to modern day Dreamliner. The Apollo exhibit was on display, which made it extra interesting. Even got to walk through a retired Air Force One.

Aviatinon from the the beginning with a replica of the Wright Bros flyer to the latest Boeing 787. Currenlty, there is a new space exhibit with engines used to launch an Apollo mision (recoverd from the ocean) and an Apollo capsule. It is a little prcey though

Outstanding collection of historical and current planes and equipment. The ability to walk into the storage bay of the Space Shuttle was awe-inspiring. The three year old can run up and down the ramps and sit in the cockpits. The seventy year old can reminisce on the early days of flight. Fun for all.
