Located approximately 25 miles north of Seattle, The Future of Flight...

Located approximately 25 miles north of Seattle, The Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour is the only public tour of a commercial jet assembly plant in North America.

Explore the interactive exhibits and displays in our 28,000-square-foot Aviation Center Gallery; then take a 90-minute tour of the Boeing plant where you can watch 747s, 777s, or 787 Dreamliners being assembled right before your eyes.

There is a minimum height requirement of 4 feet (122 cm) for children participating in the Boeing Tour. To avoid disappointment please make sure to check height before purchasing tickets. This restriction is strictly enforced.

ADA accessible tours are offered twice daily. Call in advance to ensure proper accommodations.

In the Future of Flight Aviation Center Gallery, the Family Zone is home to a number of different activities, all designed around a theme of aircraft manufacturing and assembly. Activity carts let visitors build a simple aircraft model, or use our Lego (and Lego-compatible) pieces to express new ideas about aircraft design. A kid-sized airport and aircraft allow future pilots of all ages to practice their take-offs and landings. Currently, the Family Zone is also home to a highly engaging, hands-on nanotechnology exhibit, and our new Bernoulli Table, an exciting interactive experience that teaches the relationship between the velocity of air and the pressure it exerts. Coloring and reading activities are also available, and drop-ins are welcome. Admission is free for ticket holders and for Future of Flight Foundation Members.

Incredible site, $25 entrance for adults, various discounts available, not for airline employees though (sadly!) The one frustrating thing is that you cannot take any phones/bags or anything into the factory. They mention this at least 15 times. I understand the security of the site, however it's so disappointing to not have a record of your time here as it's... More

Really enjoyed the Boeing aviation Center in Seattle. We went in the summer of 2016. Very interesting place as there is lots of history about the Boeing family and the aviation industry. Lots of informative exhibits. Too bad we missed the tour. Otherwise it would be an even greater experience.

The Boeing Factory tour is absolutely worth while. I am not especially into the details of planes but I found this really interesting and informative. There is a lot to see and the tour takes about two hours from the time you see the short introductory film. I have been on a 747 a few times but I now have... More

Fist off, I am fascinated with Boeing's contributions to the aviation field especially with their latest technological advances. To be able to see the plant where these technologies are assembled was so exciting! The tour and museum were very informative and to see all the work that goes in to the delivery of an aircraft firsthand is quite exciting.

Well worth going to. The factories are amazing and to see aircraft getting put together was great. I would recommend it to people who aren't aviation people as well as those who like their aviation. The only disappointing thing was that the dream lifter was there and I didn't get to see it take off as it was gone by... More

We booked a tour at Boeing months in advance and paid 18USD/pers. The tour itself takes you in exactly 2 hours through the factory and shows you the workfloor of the factory. As the guide has a lot of information to tell and show you in those 2 hours, the pace is very high so you have to run sometimes... More

Took one of the first tours of the day which appeared to be less crowded and did my reservations online to ensure a spot., It was a very informational tour and you learn so much about air craft. The tour guide had the answer to any question asked. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

Fantastic tour of facility and museum. The tour is relatively short but they allow you to briefly see the inside of the 'biggest building in the world' by volume. It was difficult to process all of the moving parts and just so impressive at the immensity of an assembly line for huge jetliners. We spent a couple hours in the... More

Visited the Boeing "Future of Flight Aviation" exhibit Saturday morning. Early morning weekend tours are generally less crowed and affords direct interaction with the tour guide. The 90-minute tour starts off with a short orientation film followed by a quick shuttle ride to the main assembly plant (the largest covered building in the US). We were taken into the bowels...

Thought I still questioned whether the Boeing factory is comparable to NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building.
