My 5 and 8 year old boys loved our 3-hour visit to the museum. The especially liked climbing in and out of the various planes on display, as well as playing around in the air traffic control tower play area.

Having lived near Seattle for 20 years, today I decided to visit the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field/King County airport. What a great place to visit. Very clean, well laid out. It was a terrific venue to teach the history of flight. The museum is very clean and modern, well laid out with the old Red Barn Boeing factory... More

I have always been interested in airplanes and aviation, so my inner 12 y/o really come out during my recent visit to the Museum of Flight. The museum is huge, and I would HIGHLY suggest coming earlier in the day so you can see it all, or purchase a return ticket before leaving if you didn't see everything. During your... More

A simply outstanding/without parallel, aviation/space museum. First visited [from Sydney Australia] some years ago but its appeal continues undiminished because of its ongoing growth & expansion. Extraordinary displays [photographs/videos/film/models to physical planes/mock ups etc etc] tracing the history of Aviation/Space from the earliest times to the relatively recent. Never seen anything this in my entire life. Leonardo da Vinci flying... More

Great place to bring visitors to the Seattle area or just go yourself. Everything from WWI biplanes to the moon rover. Very hands on. We have attended multiple times with friends in family ages 9-70 and everyone had an enjoyable experience. There is an Apollo command module on display. This give you a real sense of how extraordinary our trip... More

The museum is a great place for anyone who is interested in airplanes and how they went from delivering mail, to helping in wars to carrying passengers. Boeing's history is important to Seattle and the museum explains how it all started in a small barn. There are real airplanes hanging from the ceiling as well as historic airplanes on the... More

The Museum of Flight keeps its aircraft in pristine condition, some of which are ready to fly again. It has a variety of aircraft that establishes the history of flight from its very beginnings. Staff is accommodating and ready to assist as needed. It's a great place to visit and especially to the young who have an interest and desire... More

This museum is packed with interesting hands-on activities from landing a plane to air traffic control. You can get in a number of planes and check out the cockpits. Every wonder about Airforce One, check out the planes. They also have a lot of material from the Space Exploration program. There are DAYS worth of things to explore. Fun for... More

We love this place, no matter how many times we come we still find something new to do or learn. the events and celebrations they do make it one more thing to smile about. The Museum of Fright and the Santa Fly-in, are my families "can't wait til... More
