Description:

The planes within the Flying Heritage Collection were created at a time...

The planes within the Flying Heritage Collection were created at a time when aeronautical discovery had evolved to aviation mastery. Finely crafted by distinguished design bureaus with leading technologies of the 1930s and 1940s, the main emphasis of the collection includes combat aircraft from World War II. Examples include U.S., British, German, Russian and Japanese types, which were often pitted against each other in great air battles. These rare survivors were researched, hunted down and sometimes recovered from former battlegrounds and airfields. While a few specimens were rebuilt by previous owners, the majority on display have received restoration of the highest authenticity. In 1998, Paul G. Allen began acquiring and preserving these iconic warriors and workhorses, many of which are the last of their kind. Allen's passion for aviation and history, and his awareness of the increasing rarity of original WWII aircraft, motivated him to restore these artifacts to the highest standard of authenticity and share them with the public. While the education they provide is significant, we hope you take special pleasure in knowing that these historic aircraft are not meant simply for display in a static museum environment. As part of the Flying Heritage Collection, their destiny is to return once more to the sky, where they were always meant to be. The Flying Heritage Collection is operated by Friends of Flying Heritage, a 501 (c)(3) organization committed to educating the public about these rare, historic aircraft.

Come here a few times a year on dates with my 3 year old daughter and she loves it. The people are super friendly and will give you as much or as little space as you want. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable and will talk your ear off or just let you wonder at your own pace. It's great to see... More

A really unique collection of flying antique aircraft with unprecedented access. Rides are available on some of the fleet. Check out their web site to see what days the different aircraft are flying. Two other worthwhile aviation stops on the west side of the airport at the Future of Flight - (not much as this museum, but access to Boeing... More

Wow........you can either fight the traffic trying to get into Seattle to see The Museum of Flight (at Boeing Field), or you can stay in the north end and see the wonderful Flying Heritage Collection in Mukilteo. Both are wonderful experiences. As for myself, I rarely want to try and weave my way through Seattle traffic anymore. Though this collection... More

Gem in the pacific northwest. One of the most friendly and interesting "museum" visits ever. Guides are very knowledgable, friendly and really interesting. Collection is fabulous. If they have a special event go, if not go. Lot's of fun and knowledge. They also fly most of them!
