Owner 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 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 Boeing factory is the largest footprint and volume of any building in the world, and it's quite a sight to see how they make the airplanes. A must-see!

My family was visiting, they took the Boeing tour but three year old grandson was not tall enough to go on the tour. We, grandparents, stayed with him in the gallery. He was fascinated with the hands on experiments, and other displays. One and half hours went by real fast. the rest of the family also enjoyed the gallery after their tour. It was a great family time.

The enormous scale and immense organization it takes to build commercial aircraft are on display at the Boeing Plant. Tour leaders are extremely knowledgeable however the tour only includes observation platforms, as no one is permitted on the floor. It would be impossible to squeeze tourists onto the floor and guarantee their safety but the platforms provide a bird eye view of the enormous factory. Even 747s look tiny inside! If you have a few hours, make the trek and be sure to check the roofop viewing area to see planes takeoff and land after the tour.

This was such an incredible tour! Mind blowing how big these planes are and the ability to assemble to each airline's specific orders. Leslie, our tour guide was so informative and answered all my questions. I highly recommend this to anyone whether you are an aviation buff or not! Well worth the price.
