This is one amazing museum and we Seattleites consider it one of our most precious treasures. It is a great place for people of all ages. The Space shuttle trainer is one of my favorites.

Wasn't thinking much when we visited here but there are indoor air planes and space exhibits that kept kids entertained and adults educated for hours. A lot of hands on for kids.

Boy,that's a collection.... Despite some other well equipped aviation museums where beauties have to rot outdoors, this collection is a jewel. Conveniently located between Seatac and the City, you shouldn't miss a visit when in the area!

Awesome museum. Fabulous range of aircraft. Space shuttle trainer was the best to get a feel of what it's like to be an astronaut aboard. Great staff and very friendly. Going aboard the first Air Force One was a special experience. The museum is a must stop.

This museum is an amazing collection of aero memorabilia. I had always dreamed of travelling on a concord so to see it was almost as good! With the fabulous WW1 and WW2 collection you need at least 3-4 hours to see it all. I travelled here on the bus which took 20 minutes or so through industrial/suburb areas but the... More

This place was fantastic. Some of the best airplane staging l've seen, especially in the WWll exhibition. Vey cool! If you're into your airfix models this is well worth a look!
