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 tour was fabulous! Following the construction of the aircraft from start to finish and seeing how they move the parts around for assembly was so very interesting. The tour guide was very informative and explained everything in detail. I would recommend this tour to...More

Great tour to see how these huge planes are constructed and to hear the Boeing story. There are also interesting displays in the reception area. The building is massive and so there is lots of walking although you are transported there by a shuttle bus....More

This was an excellent tour. Our guide, Amanda, was extremely knowledgeable about the facility and was passionate about the planes and the company. It was down to a perfect science.

A must-visit for any aviation or airplane lovers. There is so much to see and the premise is huge, so do allocate half-1 day of walking around.

I liked it better when the factory tour was free. $10 for me (former employee) $23 each for my guests...seems overpriced. The factory tour was outstanding!

My husband and I really enjoyed the tour. The price was very reasonable. It was great to be inside the largest building in the world and to actually see planes being built. I especially liked the free digital picture with the planes in the background...More

The tour of the Boeing factory was my husband's choice for his birthday. We went with the entire family, enjoying all the views, yet it went too quickly to translate everything for our daughters (we were on vacation from Holland). The factory is soooo large...More

Its only 1.5 hours but you see actual construction of commerical jets. Well organized and knowledgable tour guides. Any body who flies will find it facinating about how your jet is made. Large impressive facility for all. Must see

We were there on a Saturday morning and nobody was working. Weekdays are probably best if you want to see that, but it would be a lot noisier. I'm sure it's great anytime!
