Quite simply a fantastic museum for anyone with an interest in flight, engineering and history. Superb restored exhibits from the earliest history of flight. The blackbird in the main interior hall is extremely impressive, as is the open covered hanger Concorde, a 747, a Dreamliner and one of the early Air Force One's to name but a few that you... More

That is, until I spend a day to walk around, I was so wrong. Basically sums up the history of human flight up until now.

A real hidden gem of an aviation museum. Fantastic collection of WW II airplanes. It is fantastic to get an opportunity to go on the old Air Force One and a Concord. Don't miss the Space Shuttle on the other side of the walkway.

So much to see. Should not be missed if you are interest in airplanes or space flight. Established in 1965 and fully accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. As the largest private air and space museum in the world, it also hosts the largest K-12 educational programs. Our highlight on our visit to Seattle.

It's amazing, I have been going to Seattle for 40 years and never stopped at the Boeing Museum of Flight. What a mistake! It's one of the finest displays vintage airplanes I have ever seen, along with absolutely first cabin historical data to boot. I cannot recommend this place highly enough! If you have kids, you need to bring them... More

For anyone who is passionate about planes, The Museum of Flight is a must see. This incredible museum honors the wonders of flight and people who have dedicated their lives to it. My Dad was both a military and commercial pilot, as well as an avid collector of airplane memorabilia. When he passed away, it was an honor to donate... More

This museum is fantastic, and isn't just the standard cookie cutter affair one would expect from a corporate funded and controlled experience. All your standard Boeing aircraft information can be found along with a seemingly endless array of actual aircraft that you can interact with. There is even a detailed section on the NASA equipment and the outer space projects... More

The place is huge. So many different and interactive exhibits. Everything is represented from the beginning of flight to very recent modern technology. I especially liked being able to tour the inside of a retired Concorde. My 8 year old also loved the place. Well worth the time in Seattle if you like airplanes.

This is a MUST SEE if you are visiting the Seattle area. So much history to learn and great ways to learn it. Amazing planes to see and walk through - plus you can see a NASA Shuttle Simulator!
