This museum is a "must go" destination in Seattle, which many consider to be the birthplace of commercial aviation in the world! The displays are well thought-out and logically presented, and the outdoor static aircraft displays are a highlight! Even casual aviation enthusiasts will come away impressed with Boeing's relentless innovations in aircraft design and manufacture.

This is an amazing site, cost $23 for an adult, many different discounts available so simply ask at the desk if you are eligible. The museum has so much to offer in different zones, the space zone is incredible as is the aviation pavilion. Seeing all those 'must sees' in one spot, Concorde, Air Force One the first ever Boeing... More

Boeing is a local icon and the Museum of Flight does not disappoint. Lots of information and old and new airplanes capture the long and rich history of aviation in Seattle.

Evergreen is a real american aviation story. I was bummed that the kid running the theatre would not let me attend the correct movie. I ended up watching fire and Ice. I found it lame but a good first glance at science. I sat at the helm of the spruce goose. They have a drone program for kids.

Interesting site visit absolutely no bags or cell phones. No photos in the hangars which I thought was a bit strange because we saw a lot of 747 being assembled. The new Dreamliner we saw from a distance. It was good but a bit paranoid from a security perspective. Didn't see any secret new planes.

(This is another place I've visited beyond TA's year-ago limit, so be advised that things may have changed). A few years back we took by brother-in-law and family to see, and the exhibits were well done, airplanes as well as space. There is plenty to see. The admission for adults is around $20, seems a bit high, but per hour... More

This is a great museum that explains a lot about aviation and how it has progressed. Even if you know nothing about airplanes, there are plenty of signs and information that should interest even the most unimpressed guest. For me, this museum had an extensive display of WWI aircraft, which is usually forgotten due to the lack of actual airplanes... More

This is one of Seattle's best attractions! There's a lot to see here, so take your time. They are always adding new exhibits. There are several buildings to see, so wear comfortable shoes. In addition, there are several interactive activities and films to watch. Take your breaks in the cafeteria and watch planes take off from Boeing field. The gift... More

This is a great option for anyone but especially for cruise passengers looking for an activity before boarding their ship. It's close to the cruise pier and family friendly. If you live locally and have never been, make a plan to go.
