Description:

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.

The plant tour exceeded our expectations and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic; he took the time to answer everyone's questions. We wish we could have seen a plane being painted. We booked a later tour date and arrived before the previous tour and they let us switch to the earlier tour so we didn't have to wait.... More

Getting to see a Boeing 747 being assembled or hordes of B-777 or dream liners on the assembly floor is a delight for interested person to watch. When you understand the logistic of getting all parts together on the floor your awe stuck. Future of flight aviation is a decent exhibition but nothing compared to trip through the Boeing Factory

Well,,, by now you probably know that I can't post a picture. *they're not allowed. But the tour was prompt, fairly interesting, well run and presented. We could hear or guide over the factory noise and slew of translators for the non-citizens in our group. It's a good "1 time" type thing to cross off your bucket list

Excellent 1/2 day tour from Seattle, friendly driver to and from hotel. The actual tour of the production line is about 90 mins, amazing size of the site and to see actual planes being made on mass inside one building was the highlight. So much to take in. If you like planes then this a must.

The Everett Boeing tour offers the chance to come close to the assembly of its many venerable aircraft. The 90-minute tour took us around the plant that the tour guide claimed was the largest building in the world. It stretched for over a mile and houses the assembly of the 747, 767, 777 and 787. We saw airplanes in various... More

Seeing where the Boeing 747, 777, 787 are built was amazing. The tour is 1 1/2 hours long with a lot of walking and some stairs. You see the production line from above the plant so your view of the planes is unique. The building is the largest production assembly line in the world. To get around they take you... More

We toured the Boeing facility on our recent visit to the USA and Seattle. We took a tour late afternoon which we pre-booked on their internet site. The Aviation Centre was amazing with all aspects of Boeing displayed in exhibits (such as engines) and models. There is a viewing platform upstairs where you can view the vast manufacturing plant. Also... More

If you are interested in how your aircraft you flew to Seattle in is made, this the place to go. Wish we could have spent more time there.

Boeing Factory tour was a very interesting visit. Seeing gigantic building where Boeing 747,787 and 737 Airliners are being assembled was a rare treat. Millions of parts and tens of thousands of miles long cables, all the seats and luggage racks make up one massive object. Even an engineer with all the theoretical understanding of flight is bound to be... More

At their facility in Everett Boeing has a tour that we found very worthwhile taking in. Anyone who flies on commercial airlines should find it interesting. One can take a tour bus from Seattle that costs around $60-70/person that I assume includes the $20/person 16 yrs and older charged by Boeing for the tour itself. For the two of us... More
