I would say this is a must see thing to do when you are in Seattle. It hosted a wide array of aircraft from the earliest days of aviation to space exploration. It also shows how air traffic control is part of today's aviation. There are flight simulators that are more in the game genre. We could have spent a... More

This is a very exciting and interesting museum about flight. An icon in Seattle and fun for children because they can experience and touch airplanes in way one cannot on a regular commercial flight.

I take my cousin who from oversea to this museum and it is great time. You gotta know the first airplane and different airplane from different period in actual size. My parent love it and the kids love it. Also you have a chance to see the first boeing that used for president. Me and my family spend hours in... More

The museum of flight is a must see for Seattle visitors. In my opinion, it puts the Air & Space museum in DC to shame. The variety of aircraft and the history especially in the personal courage wing areas stands out. Where else can you walk into the building and see a beautifully restored super constellation displayed as if it... More

So many things to see and do here in the museum. From early travel, the space age, and commercial airliners this was a fascinating experience!!! In addition, you can cross the street via an overhead walkway and view static displays of several aircraft.

There are so many unique and fascinating aircraft and space items in this giant museum. There are truly very few museums of this size and quality in the world. Plus you can see JFK's Air Force One and find out they had a dog door to the private room so their dog could wander the aircraft. How cool!

I visited here while visiting Seattle. It is a fascinating place with lots of displays and information and I found that my visit lasted several more hours than I has planned. I felt the best part was the annex housing the space artefacts and the film presentations, especially the slow motion launch, was amazing. It was a little disappointing that... More

we have seen several flight museums, so not much new for us, but have a lot to offer and covers a lot of property. Layout is strange, so get your baring to not miss things.

The only problem was that we couldn't get into Airforce One. It was getting some new wheels. Everything is so cool. I couldn't land the Spaceshuttle which was very disappointing. We tried for at least 30 minutes but couldn't do it. I probably should have read the directions but it was fun. It was fun to walk in the 747... More

If you are into flight, space and blue skies this is the place for you. You'll see planes from WWI and you'll finish with the beautiful 787 and the incredible Blackbird. Also you'll satisfy your space curiosity, with lunar rovers, moon rocks, and satellites.
