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 a 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 Institute of Flight members.

The "4 foot tall" policy makes it difficult to bring your family here. The excuse here is that too many parents lift their children over the rails and if there are wheelchairs, they quickly block the glass viewing areas. With a proper management, this could...More

This is one of the most amazing industrial tours available to the public and I would highly recommend it. Although I have no background in flight technology, learning about the international scope of Boeing is well worth the investment.

The Boeing plant tour is highly educational. Seeing where and how Boeing builds its large aircraft was interesting. Our tour guide, Scott, was exceptional.

I do not think they allow children at that age. I have seen restrictions on the height of the child.
