The factory tour around the Boeing manufacturing facility is well worth it. The scale of the operation is amazing. I didn't think as much of the museum side, but may have missed some bits. The factory tour was the bit not to miss.

Fascinating history - it's about planes but not just about planes. Not enough time to cover it all - allow yourself the better part of a day (but 2-3 hours gives you a great flavor of the place.)
